Ufberg Appointed to State Board

The Times-Tribune – April 28, 2015

By Robert Swift, Harrisburg Bureau Chief

A prominent Wilkes-Barre attorney now sits on a state commission that reviews regulations to make sure they are consistent with the laws that led to them.

Murray Ufberg was named last month by Gov. Tom Wolf to a seat on the Independent Regulatory Review Commission. The commission has been in existence since the 1980s and is composed of five gubernatorial and legislative appointees.

The IRRC ensures that the legislative intent behind new state laws is carried out by the executive branch, and also considers the impact of proposed regulations on the economy, public health and safety, and small business.

Mr. Ufberg has been a managing partner in the firm of Rosenn, Jenkins and Greenwald for more than 22 years.
