WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee recommended to the full House Democratic Caucus that Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) be added to the House Committee on Homeland Security for the 113th Congress. He already serves on the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.
Swalwell released the following statement on this new committee assignment:
“From protecting ports like San Francisco, to keeping the Internet secure, to safeguarding mass transit such as BART, the House Committee on Homeland Security plays a vital role in making sure the American homeland is safe. I look forward to serving on that committee in the 113th Congress. I want to thank Leader Pelosi, Steering and Policy Co-Chairs DeLauro and Andrews, and the entire Democratic Steering and Policy Committee for this tremendous opportunity.”
