Congressman Keith Rothfus [PA-12] today announced his committee and subcommittee assignments for the 113th Congress. He will serve on the House Committee on Homeland Security and the House Committee on the Judiciary.
On Homeland Security, Congressman Rothfus will serve on the Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection, and Security Technologies as well as the Subcommittee on Oversight and Management Efficiency. He will also serve on the following Judiciary subcommittees: Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet; Constitution and Civil Justice; and Regulatory Reform, Commercial and Antitrust Law.
"These important assignments will provide opportunities to make the voices and interests of Western Pennsylvanians heard in our nation's capital," said Rothfus. "I will stand with hardworking taxpayers and small business owners by working to improve the efficiency of our government, lift unnecessary government regulations, protect our nation and improve conditions that provide for freedom and economic growth in America."
"I am pleased that Congressman Rothfus will be serving on three very important subcommittees at the Judiciary Committee," said Chairman Bob Goodlatte [VA-6]. "The Committee has wide-ranging jurisdiction and will certainly be at the forefront of many of the most important issues of the day. Congressman Rothfus, who brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, will play a critical role in helping to advance policies that make America more competitive and free."
"I am pleased to welcome Congressman Rothfus as a member of the Homeland Security team," said Chairman Michael McCaul [TX-10].
