Representative David Maloney was first elected to represent the people of the 130th Legislative District in 2010. He has served on a number of House committees during his tenure and has been named the Republican Chairman of the Game and Fisheries Committee for the 2023-24 legislative session.
David’s legislative accomplishments include a number of notable bills that have become law. In November of 2017, Pennsylvania voters adopted a constitutional amendment he sponsored that allows for the exclusion of 100% of homestead/farmstead property tax assessment. Some of David’s other bills enacted as law include “Don’t Pass the Trash”, legislation signed into law to require background checks of those working with children, and legislation mandating that schools report all instances of known child abuse occurrences.
David has also successfully championed bills establishing the annual First Responders Day in Pennsylvania (September 27), requiring the Commonwealth to display the POW/MIA flag on state-owned properties, and permitting public schools to be used as venues for hunter education courses.
David’s ongoing priorities include property tax elimination, child protection, removal of barriers to private sector job creation, protection of property rights, and conservation.
In his role as Chairman of the Game and Fisheries Committee, David continues efforts to ensure the Pennsylvania Game and Fish and Boat Commissions operate in a responsible manner and on behalf of Pennsylvania sportsmen and boaters, combat Chronic Wasting Disease, promote the availability of hunter safety courses for students, and restore populations or our state bird, the Ruffed Grouse.
Prior to his election to the House of Representatives, David served on the Oley Valley School Board. He is also a PIAA official, a longtime registered state wildlife agent, and has volunteered with many community organizations and events.
David graduated from Boyertown Area High School in 1978 and began his career as a process engineer with a local company before moving from the manufacturing sector into construction, where he worked as a self-employed contractor for 25 years.
A sportsman since his elementary school days, David is an avid hunter and outdoorsman. He has tallied both Pope & Young bear and whitetail, as well as Pennsylvania’s coveted Triple Trophy – with a bow. David is also an accomplished athlete, having competed in track, cycling, and bodybuilding.
David and his wife, Debby, reside in Pike Township where they raised their four children to adulthood. They have since welcomed three sons-in-law, a daughter-in-law, and 10 grandchildren to the family.
