State Sen. Mike Regan (R-York) announced Tuesday that he would not seek reelection to the state’s 31st Senatorial District when his current term expires at the end of 2024. 

Regan, whose district includes parts of Cumberland and York Counties, has served two terms in the state House and Senate. 

He wrote in a letter to supporters that he would not seek reelection to spend more time with his family. 

“I look forward to traveling with my wonderful wife, Fran, spending time with my four children, watching my youngest son play college football, and continuing to advocate for the issues that are important to me,” Regan said. 

In 2021, Regan was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident that resulted in hospitalization while serving in office. 

Regan currently serves as chair of the Senate Law & Justice Committee and Vice Chair of the Local Government Committee.  

In the letter, Regan reflected on his time in office, saying it was an “honor to serve in our historic Capitol building for what will be 12 years at the end of my term.” 

“I’ve had the unforgettable opportunity to work for the great people who reside in York and Cumberland Counties and to work with many dedicated members of the General Assembly and staff who serve their constituents so well,” Regan said.
