Upton on Selection of Greg Walden as Next Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman
WASHINGTON, DC – Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) today issued the following statement congratulating Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman-elect Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR). Rep. Walden will take over the committee in the 115th Congress.
“Like the Chicago Cubs, we are a team full of MVPs and Energy and Commerce will be in great hands with my friend Greg Walden holding the gavel. Greg’s leadership with #SubCommTech demonstrated his hard work and proven record of success,” said Upton. “We’ve got a lot to do in the remaining days of this Congress, including getting 21st Century Cures across the finish line. As we look toward a new year, a new Congress, and a new administration, the Energy and Commerce Committee will be leading the way on health reform, keeping energy affordable, and putting folks back to work. House Republicans have a better way, and I look forward to Greg Walden’s leadership in the 115th Congress.”
