PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Pennsylvania House Speaker Mike Turzai of Bradford Woods is announcing today that he’s resigning this year before his term ends.

Mr. Turzai talked about it on the KDKA Radio Morning Show, “I think it’s time to move into the private sector and lead there, I’m still going to talk about the important issues.”

Those issues include school choice, energy independence and dignity of life.

In January, Turzai, who serves the 28th legislative District in parts of Allegheny County, said he was not running for reelection.

Turzai will reportedly work for Essential Utilities which recently bought Peoples Gas.

Among his accomplishments, Turzai cities modernizing beer and wine sales, pension reform and fiscal stewardship.
