McCarthy Appointed to Committee on House Administration
Washinton D.C. -- Tonight, Congressman-Elect Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was appointed to serve on the Committee on House Administration for the 110th Congress. Unlike other committees in the House, Republican appointments to serve on House Administration are made solely at the discretion of the House Republican Leader, John Boehner (R-OH).
“Being one of three House Republicans entrusted by the Republican Leader to oversee Federal election law and day-to-day operations of the House is an honor,” said McCarthy. “Serving on the House Administration Committee is an opportunity to enhance accountability in Washington.”
“I’m proud to have Congressman McCarthy serving on the House Administration Committee,” said Boehner. “He is one of the rising stars among our newest lawmakers, and will bring an important and fresh new perspective to this critical post.”
The Committee on House Administration will include six Democratic Members and three Republican Members. Of the three Republican Members, McCarthy will join Rep. Vernon Ehlers (R-MI), who will serve as Ranking Member of the committee, and Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA), former esteemed California Attorney General. The committee has jurisdiction over Federal elections, including federal election law reforms and monitoring Congressional elections across the country. The House Administration Committee also oversees daily operations of the U.S. House of Representatives, including administrative, technical, and security details, and the management of the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Institution.
