About Me 
As a strong fiscal conservative bringing the ideals of the people of Mercer and Butler counties to the state Capitol, Rep. Dick Stevenson has served the 8th District in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives since 2001.

A member of the House Republican Leadership team, Stevenson is currently serving his second term as caucus administrator. As such, he is responsible for managing many of the business affairs specifically relating to the caucus and plays a vital role in all leadership deliberations.

During his tenure in state office, he has successfully authored nine bills into law. They include: 
  • Act 50 of 2005 honors veterans of recent military conflicts and veterans of general service with a specialized vehicle license plate.
  • Act 189 of 2006 allows the sale of government documents to be exempt from the state’s sales tax.
  • Act 70 of 2007 increases the fee on bad checks.
  • Act 103 of 2008 improves the apprenticeship process in the real estate appraisal field.
  • Act 9 of 2009 allows a one-year extension for the sale of non-fire safe cigarettes to help retailers.
  • Act 37 of 2011designates U.S. Route 62 in Mercer County as the Mercer County Veterans Highway.
  • Act 4 of 2012 requires appraisal management companies to be registered with the Pennsylvania Department of State and its Board of Certified Real Estate Appraisers.
  • Act 35 of 2013 allows estates valued at less than $50,000 to be exempt from personal representative requirements, and allows a minor or a minor’s parent to dispose of or hold the minor’s portion of the estate with a value of $50,000 or less without the appointment of a guardian or the entry of security.
  • Act 36 of 2013 authorizes local government planning commissions to inform interested parties of their activities, including meeting and hearing schedules, through more efficient means.
In addition, Stevenson has championed landmark legislation to spur economic growth by reducing business taxes, lifting regulatory and legal burdens on job creators, creating family sustaining jobs in Pennsylvania and limiting the amount of borrowing by state government. He continues to support legislation limiting state mandates on local governments and creating meaningful tax reform. He is also working to see that laws governing agriculture are designed to preserve that industry, which is vital to the state economy.

During his legislative career, Stevenson has served on the Appropriations, Judiciary and Professional Licensure committees, among others. He was also the chairman of the House Subcommittee on Education within the House Appropriations Committee and co-chaired the House Republican Policy Committee’s Infrastructure Task Force. This task force studied various transportation issues, including roads and bridges, rail and airport infrastructure, water and sewer infrastructure, and energy infrastructure, as well as job growth and economic development.

Prior to running for the General Assembly, Stevenson served as chairman of the Mercer County Board of Commissioners from 1996 to 1999 and brought a business-like approach to Mercer County government. He also served as a member of the Grove City Borough Council from 1985 to 1993 and served as its president from 1988 to 1993.

Stevenson, a certified general appraiser, was the owner of Stevenson and Company, a real estate appraising firm, for more than 20 years. He is past president and director of the Greater Mercer County Board of Realtors, and served on the Board of Directors and as past state vice president of the Council of Pennsylvania Real Estate Appraisers. In addition, Stevenson has a long history of public service with many community organizations.

The Mercer County lawmaker served with distinction in the United States Air Force from 1968 to 1972. He was an Air Crew member in Korea and served as a Korean Language Specialist with the USAF Security Service.

Stevenson received a Bachelor of Arts degree from St. Francis College in New York and a Master of Business Administration from Suffolk University in Massachusetts.

He and his wife, Sue, have two grown daughters, Sarah Hatfield and Emily Vallozzi, and five grandchildren.

The 8th Legislative District includes Brady, Center, Cherry, Clay, Concord, Fairview, Franklin, Jackson, Lancaster, Marion, Mercer, Muddy Creek and Worth townships, and Fairview, Harmony, Harrisville, Karns City, Petrolia, Portersville, Prospect, West Liberty, West Sunbury and Zelienople boroughs in Butler County, and Findley, Liberty, Pine, Springfield and Wolf Creek townships, and Grove City and Mercer boroughs in Mercer County.
