Committees and Caucuses
The United States House of Representatives’s committees consider bills and issues and oversee agencies, programs, and activities within their jurisdictions. The House currently has 21 congressional committees; 20 standing committees and one select committee. All but three committees, the Budget Committee, the Ethics Committee, and the House Administration Committee, are subdivided into subcommittees, each with its own leadership. Below are the committees and subcommittees I have been assigned to.
- Subcommittee on Military Construction and Veterans Affairs
- Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development
- Ranking Member, Subcommittee on Intelligence Modernization and Readiness
