Today, state Sen. Don White (R-Indiana) announced he will be retiring effective February 28.
During his announcement today, White said he had been “back and forth on this issue for the better part of a year” and shared it was an “honor and privilege to represent the people of the 41st District.”
The 69 year-old state Senator serves as the chairman of the Senate Banking and Insurance Committee, while also being apart of the following committees: Environmental Resources & Energy, Game & Fisheries, Law & Justice Vice-Chair, Rules & Executive Nominations, and State Government.
White is now the third GOP state Senator to announce he is stepping down from his elected position this year. State Sen. Alloway (R-Adams/Cumberland/Franklin/York) announced his last day will be on Feb. 28 over one week ago and former State Sen. Guy Reschenthaler (R-Allegheny) stepped down from his seat at the beginning of the year due to his victory for U.S. Congress in Pennsylvania’s 14th District.
White was due for re-election in Nov. 2020, but his resignation will result in a special election called by Lt. Gov. John Fetterman.
