Committee Assignments

Rules Committee

Ranking Republican

The Rules Committee has two broad categories of jurisdiction: special orders for the consideration of legislation (known as “special rules” or “rules”) and original jurisdiction matters. A special rule provides the terms and conditions of debate on a measure or matter, consideration of which constitutes the bulk of the work of the Rules Committee. The committee also considers original jurisdiction measures, which commonly represent changes to the standing rules of the House.

Appropriations Committee

Vice Ranking Republican

This Committee has jurisdiction over spending measures, including appropriations bills that fund all federal government agencies. There are 12 subcommittees, each with jurisdiction over an annual appropriations bill. While I currently serve as Ranking Republican of the Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies, I am also a member of the Subcommittee on Defense
