Biography 
Ryan E. Mackenzie is a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and is in his fourth term representing the 134th Legislative District (parts of Berks and Lehigh Counties). For the 2017-18 legislative session, Ryan was selected to serve as deputy majority whip and deputy chair of the Majority Policy Committee.

Pennsylvania House of Representatives
As state Representative, Ryan serves as a member of four House standing committees: Commerce, Environmental Resources & Energy, Insurance, and Labor & Industry. Additionally, he has been appointed to represent the House on the Pennsylvania Workforce Development Board and the Aggregate Advisory Board.

Ryan is a strong advocate for what he sees as the most important issues facing Pennsylvania: creating jobs, protecting taxpayers, strengthening education, and reforming government. He has successfully passed legislation in these areas, and will continue to fight for these causes.

Current legislation introduced by Ryan seeks to protect taxpayers from fraud committed by tax collectors, create more career awareness amongst high school and middle school students, modernize our state’s healthcare delivery system by updating treatment procedures for stroke victims, and reduce drug addiction by reforming prescribing guidelines in Pennsylvania’s workers’ compensation system.

Legislative Accomplishments
Within six months of taking office, Ryan introduced and passed his first piece of legislation. That bill (now Act 169 of 2012) streamlined government operations and reduced unnecessary regulations. Ryan went on to become the prime sponsor of legislation that was hailed as the “most significant tax reform in 20 years” by the Pennsylvania CPA Journal. This legislation (now Act 52 of 2013) made numerous changes to the tax code that included closing corporate tax loopholes; reducing tax rates; and even eliminating the inheritance tax for small, family-owned businesses.

Ryan has also passed other pieces of legislation, including Pennsylvania Startups for Soldiers, which waives state business filing fees for veterans and active duty service members to reward military service and promote entrepreneurship.

Early Career
Prior to being elected to office, Ryan served as the director of policy at the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry. In this senior management role, he worked on issues relating to unemployment compensation reform, workers’ comp insurance, the Uniform Construction Code, and workforce development. He was successful in leading the way on bipartisan efforts that saved Pennsylvania taxpayers $100 million by refinancing debt and will save an additional $400 million per year by implementing other reform measures. Ryan also represented the Department on the Board of the Team PA Foundation, the Environmental Quality Board, and the Pennsylvania Economic Development Financing Authority.

Ryan began his career by working on Pat Toomey’s first campaign for the U.S. Senate. He then worked on a number of other political campaigns and earned his real estate sales license before entering public service and accepting a position at the U.S. Department of Labor. While there, he worked extensively on domestic and international assignments and gained a strong understanding of labor market dynamics.

Life and Education
Ryan is a ninth-generation resident of Pennsylvania, where his family has lived since colonial times. He graduated from Parkland High School, received his undergraduate degree in Finance and International Business from New York University, and earned his Master in Business Administration from Harvard Business School. Ryan has continued his education by completing programs for state government officials at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business and the University of Pennsylvania’s Fels Institute of Government.

Community Involvement
An active member of the local community, Ryan is involved in a number of charities and non-profit organizations. He currently serves on the board of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, the executive council of the Lehigh Career & Technical Institute, the community advisory committee of the Autism Resource Hub of Lehigh Valley, and is a board member of the AHEPA #60 Apartments that provide affordable housing for seniors.

Awards and Honors
Ryan has been recognized for his work domestically and internationally. He was named one of the 40 Under 40 by both Lehigh Valley Business and City & State PA, was selected as a Toll Fellow by the Council of State Governments, and received the Guardian of Small Business Award from the National Federation of Independent Business. Additionally, he was named a Young Leader by the American Swiss Foundation; was selected to serve as a delegate to the Palestinian Territories, Israel, and Jordan by the American Council of Young Political Leaders; and participated in the United States-Japan Foundation’s U.S.-Japan Leadership Program.
