Congressman Brett Guthrie (KY-02) was recently named to two subcommittees for the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, the Subcommittee on Higher Education and Workforce Training and the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor and Pensions.
"I am really looking forward to working with all of Kentucky's institutions for higher education to promote learning and working to better equip today's workforce," said Congressman Guthrie. "My manufacturing background will provide a solid foundation for my work on the Subcommittee on Higher Education and Workforce Training. In addition, my work on the House Energy and Commerce Committee Health Subcommittee will be beneficial to the Help, Employment, Labor and Pensions Subcommittee's focus on health and labor issues. I am excited to get to work."
The Subcommittee on Education and Workforce Training has jurisdiction over all forms of education and training above the high school level. The Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor and Pensions has jurisdiction over all employee-employer relations.
"As our economy continues to recover, the work of both these subcommittees will be very important and I am honored to represent Kentucky's education and workforce interests," added Congressman Guthrie.
