Reps. Porter and Haaland appointed to House Oversight and Reform Committee

Today, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi appointed Freshman Reps. Katie Porter (D-CA) and Deb Haaland (D-NM) to the House Oversight and Reform Committee following the recommendation of the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee.

“On behalf of House Democrats, it is an honor to welcome two of our exceptional Freshman Members to the critically important Committee on Oversight and Reform: Congresswoman Katie Porter and Congresswoman Deb Haaland,” said Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“Congresswoman Katie Porter is an unparalleled champion for consumers and working families across America, whose diligence, determination and mastery of the issues have strengthened the Congress and the Country. Since Day One, Congresswoman Deb Haaland has distinguished herself as a patriotic, persistent leader in our Caucus, bringing her values and the voice of her community to the fight to protect our national security and our natural heritage.”

Reps. Porter and Haaland’s appointment comes following the passing of the late Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and the resignation of Vice-Chair Katie Hill (D-CA).
