Today, Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman of the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs, issued the following statement recommending the Committee Subcommittee Chairs for the 113th Congress:

I am confident these Members will work with the Committee to improve the lives of America's veterans, their families, and survivors, as well as to continue the Committee's work in the previous Congress to provide oversight of the Department of Veterans Affairs.
"I am also delighted to announce my colleague and friend, Rep. Gus Bilirakis, will continue to serve as Vice Chairman of the Committee. His dedication has been unparalleled, and I look forward to his continued leadership."
