House Republicans Name Committee Chairs for 113th Congress

Earlier this week, House Speaker John Boehner announced committee chairs for 19 of the 21 House standing committees in the 113th Congress.

Many of these chairs will not change, particularly those related to education and workforce development. Rep. John Kline (R-MN) will remain as the leader of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, and Rep. Hal Rogers will remain as chair of the full House Appropriations Committee.

While these top leaders will remain in place, questions still remain about subcommittee leaders that will play key roles in shaping the funding and authorizing bills that will most impact CTE. There are also a number of vacancies on these key committees and subcomittees that will have to be filled, so a number of new faces are expected. More information on subcommittee chairs and committee assignments should be emerging soon.

In other 113th Congress news, the final contested House seat has now been decided (with one intra-party runoff remaining), giving Democrats a net gain of eight seats over the current Congress for a projected balance of power of 234 Republicans and 201 Democrats.
