WASHINGTON D.C. Today, Congressman Hice (GA-10) announced the Committees and the associated Subcommittees on which he will serve. Hice has been appointed to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and will serve on two subcommittees; the Healthcare, Benefits & Administrative Rules Subcommittee chaired by Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), and the National Security Subcommittee chaired by Congressman Ron Desantis (R-FL).
The Health Care, Benefits and Administrative Rules Subcommittee has jurisdiction over Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, the implementation of Obamacare, and the Department of Health and Human Services. Additionally, the National Security Subcommittee has oversight jurisdiction over the Departments of Defense, State, Justice Homeland Security, and Veterans Affairs, as well as over the Intelligence Community and U.S. Agency for International Development.
Congressman Hice will also serve on the House Committee on Natural Resources and two subcommittees; the Federal Lands Subcommittee chaired by Congressman Tom McClintock (R-CA) and the Oversight & Investigations Subcommittee chaired by Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX).
Hice released the following statement regarding these assignments:
"I am honored to be selected to serve on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The need for transparency and accountability in our government is more critical than ever. Serving on the Health Subcommittee will enable me to look out for the small businesses in my district, whose expansion and growth has been stifled by Obamacare. I also look forward to serving as a conservative voice for the 10th district on matters of national security, and to protecting our natural resources from over-regulation imposed by the Obama Administration."
