On Wednesday, the House Republican Steering Committee nominated North Dakota’s Congressman Kelly Armstrong to serve on the House Energy and Commerce (E&C) Committee.
“I am honored to serve on the Energy and Commerce Committee, where I will continue fighting for North Dakota priorities,” said Congressman Armstrong. “Energy development and agriculture are the backbone of North Dakota’s economy, and I have always been a champion for these industries that employ thousands in our state. E&C considers a wide range of topics that have a major impact on our way of life, and I promise to use my voice to advocate for the men and women who rely on these industries to feed their families.”
“I’m excited to have Congressman Kelly Armstrong join the Energy and Commerce Committee. The vast majority of legislation we consider in the House runs through this committee. Congressman Armstrong brings invaluable expertise to lead on policies that will promote America’s energy independence and hold Big Tech accountable,” said Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Republican Leader of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
The E&C Committee has wide jurisdiction over critical issues including healthcare, telecommunications, technology, consumer safety, environment, food and drug safety, energy, and interstate and foreign commerce. Established in 1795, the committee is the oldest continuous standing committee in the House of Representatives.
