April 10, 2013

WASHINGTON, DC – Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) today announced that Rep. Ralph Hall (R-TX) has moved to the Subcommittee on Energy and Power and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) to the Subcommittee on Health.

“Ralph Hall is one of Congress’ most illustrious members – a former Chairman of the Science Committee, a World War II veteran, and the oldest member ever to serve in the House – and he brings a unique and time-tested perspective to the Energy and Power Subcommittee as North American energy independence is within our grasp,” said Upton.

“Cathy McMorris Rodgers was a valuable member of the Health Subcommittee last Congress, and I am pleased she will continue to play an important role in addressing the many challenges facing our nation’s health care system. As a mother of two, and as the fourth highest ranking House Republican, she provides an important voice in our ongoing efforts to help patients, assist doctors, and promote innovation and economic growth,” concluded Upton.

*Note – In taking these new assignments, Rep. Ralph Hall has vacated his seat on the Health Subcommittee while Rep. McMorris Rodgers has vacated her seat on the Energy and Power Subcommittee.
