House Chairmen Selected for 113th Congress

House Republicans took an organizing step forward for the 113th Congress by selecting Committee Chairmen this week. Many of the key players did not change – Fred Upton (Michigan) is still at the helm of Energy and Commerce Committee, Harold Rogers (Kentucky) will be in charge of the full Appropriations Committee, Paul Ryan (Wisconsin) will lead Budget, and Dave Camp (Michigan) will continue to head up Ways and Means. One big change is with Rules Committee leadership – David Dreier (California) is moving on and Pete Sessions (Texas) will be taking over. It also is notable that with Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Florida) leaving the top spot on the Foreign Affairs Committee due to term limits, there will be no women leading House Committees.

Even though there is great speculation about Subcommittee Chairs (particularly the Labor, Health, and Human Services Appropriations Subcommittee), they have yet to be announced.

In addition, the House Republican Steering Committee today approved Republican committee assignments for some committees.

Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (WA-3)

Rep. Chuck Fleischmann (TN-3)

Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (NE-1)

Rep. David Joyce (OH-14)

Rep. Thomas Rooney (FL-16)

Rep. David Valadao (CA-21)

New Republican Energy & Commerce members:

Rep. Gus Bilirakis (R-FL)

Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC)

Rep. Ralph Hall (R-TX)

Rep. Bill Johnson (R-OH)

Rep. Billy Long (R-MO)
