With the 116th Congress officially underway, members of the Alabama delegation have been announcing their committee and subcommittee assignments for the next two years.
Here’s where the delegation will be serving:
1st District U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne:
House Armed Services Committee: Subcommittee assignments will be announced in the coming weeks.
“Given Alabama’s many military installations and national defense programs, I am honored to again serve on the Armed Services Committee,” said Byrne. “Whether it is fighting for the Austal shipyard in Mobile or supporting missile defense programs critical to Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, I look forward to continuing to be a steadfast advocate for a stronger, more capable U.S. military.”
House Education and Labor Committee: Subcommittee assignments will be announced in the coming weeks.
“The Education and Labor Committee is really all about supporting the American workforce and Alabama’s economy. In order to have a strong economy, we need an education system that builds a skilled workforce and keeps decision making authority at the local and state level,” Byrne explained. “We also need labor policies that benefit workers, not Big Labor bosses or Washington bureaucrats. On the Education and Labor Committee, I will fight every day for Alabama’s students, teachers, and workers.”
2nd District U.S. Rep. Martha Roby:
House Appropriations Committee: Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations, the Subcommittee on Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, and the Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, and Science.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to continue serving on the House Appropriations Committee during the 116th Congress,” said Roby. “These subcommittee assignments give me a seat at the table to advocate for the conservative funding priorities that are important to the people I represent in Alabama’s Second District, including properly supporting our national security interests at home and abroad, ensuring adequate resources and care for our nation’s veterans, and more.”
House Judiciary Committee: will serve as the Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet.
“I am humbled to have been selected to serve as the top Republican on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet,” Roby added. “As an attorney, I’m excited to work closely on the important issues this subcommittee touches and to be a stronger voice in this leadership capacity on behalf of my district and state.”
