Toohil Appointed to Subcommittee on Crime and Corrections

Rep. Tarah Toohil (R-Luzerne) has been appointed to the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Crime and Corrections for the 2011-12 legislative session. 

The Judiciary Committee deals with issues related to crime, law enforcement, illegal drugs, family law and state ethics law.  As a member of the Subcommittee on Crime and Corrections, Toohil will be involved with issues related to the state crimes code and the Department of Corrections. 

"I am honored to serve on this subcommittee," said Toohil. "I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting to work on an issue that affects not only my constituents, but all Pennsylvanians, making our streets and communities safer.   I have particular interest in juvenile justice issues and laws against sexual offenders. This subcommittee will give me the opportunity to work on both of these important areas." 

Toohil also noted that her membership on the subcommittee will enable her to continue her efforts to pass legislation to better regulate community correctional facilities like the MinSec facility in Hazleton. 

“Our main focus should be protecting the residents of the communities where these facilities are located,” Toohil said.  “As a member of this subcommittee, I will work to increase accountability and disclosure of information about the inmates in these facilities and to ensure there is better security within the facility, better supervision of inmates when they are away from the facility, and drug testing of inmates.” 

Toohil also encouraged residents to visit her website at and follow her on Facebook at for updates about the MinSec situation and other legislative issues.
