Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-FL) was selected as Ranking Member of the Agriculture, Energy and Trade Subcommittee."I am honored to have been selected by my peers to serve as the Ranking Member of the House Small Business Subcommittee on Agriculture, Energy, and Trade," said Rep. Murphy. "I wanted to serve on the Small Business Committee because I recognize that the prosperity of small businesses—which represent half the jobs in America—is essential to our economic recovery. This subcommittee is of particular importance given the importance of agriculture in my district as well as trade through our ports and my commitment to investing in clean energy. As the lead Democrat on the Agriculture, Energy, and Trade subcommittee, I will work with both my Democratic and Republican colleagues to craft legislation on a range of issues, including economic growth in agriculture and clean energy, energy independence, and the global competitiveness of our small businesses."
