Velazquez Announces Ranking Members For 113th Congress

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."

Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY) will serve as the Ranking Member of the Investigations, Oversight and Regulations Subcommittee.  

"I would like to thank Ranking Member Velazquez for the opportunity to serve as the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Investigations, Oversight, and Regulations as well as a member of the Subcommittee on Contracting and Workforce," stated Representative Yvette D. Clarke. "Small businesses are the backbone of our nation's economy. The success of communities across this nation relies on their ability to create jobs and expand their enterprise with access to grants, government contracts, and additional resources. I look forward to working with my colleagues on the House Committee on Small Business to support the participation of minorities, women, immigrants, and veterans in our economy," concluded Representative Clarke. 

The top Democrat on the Contracting and Workforce Subcommittee will be Representative Grace Meng (D-NY).

The Small Business Committee has jurisdiction over the Small Business Administration, regulatory flexibility, and paperwork reduction.  In recent years, the Committee has held hearings on a range of topics from access to capital for small firms, federal contracting, and the overall role of small businesses in the broader economy.
