Today, Congressman John D. Dingell (D-MI12) announced his subcommittee assignments on the House Committee on Energy & Commerce for the 113th Congress. Dingell will serve as a voting member of the Health, Communications and Technology, Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade, and Environment and the Economy subcommittees.
"The Energy and Commerce Committee presides over so much of what is important in the day-to-day lives of the people of Michigan, I'm confident that continuing my work on these vital subcommittees will help me to best advocate for the people I'm so proud to represent," said Dingell. "In my work on these important subcommittees, I will continue to work to ensure that the Affordable Care Act remains properly administered and available to assist the American people, promote American manufacturing and the many high-tech industries that call our state home, and protect the air, water, and ground we walk on to make sure we protect the health of our people and leave this Nation, and this planet, a little bit better than it was when we found it."
As Chairman Emeritus of the full Committee, Dingell will also serve as an ex officio, or non-voting, member of the remaining subcommittees: Energy and Power, and Oversight and Investigations.
"It has been an honor and a privilege to serve on this wonderful committee," added Dingell. "I look forward to continuing the great work of best representing every single interest of the people of Southeast Michigan, as we work to rebuild and grow our economy, support our working families, and protect the important promises that our Nation has made to our seniors and veterans."
