costelloCongressman Ryan Costello earned a new committee assignment this week.

“I am thrilled to welcome our newest members to an already stellar team at the Energy and Commerce Committee,” said Chairman Rep. Greg Walden of Oregon. “Whether it is fixing our broken health care system or unleashing the full strength of the American economy, the committee is poised to tackle some of the most important issues facing our nation. From day one, we will work tirelessly to leverage the unique strengths of our new and returning members to ensure we continue the committee’s long record of bipartisan success.”

Costello may be replacing retired Congressman Joe Pitts who sat on this committee. Fellow PA Reps. Tim Murphy and Mike Doyle also serve on the committee.

  1. According to Wikipedia:
    The House Committee on Energy and Commerce has developed what is arguably the broadest (non-tax-oriented) jurisdiction of any Congressional committee. Today, it maintains principal responsibility for legislative oversight relating to telecommunications, consumer protection, food and drug safety, public health, air quality and environmental health, the supply and delivery of energy, and interstate and foreign commerce in general. This jurisdiction extends over five Cabinet-level departments and seven independent agencies—from the Department of Energy, Health and Human Services, the Transportation Department to the Federal Trade Commission, Food and Drug Administration, and Federal Communications Commission—and sundry quasi-governmental organizations.

    There is going to be plenty to watch him “do” in the next 2 years!! Let’s see just how “moderate” he really is or if he stands up to his party when it comes to the environment and our public health.
