I am honored to serve on the following House Committees, Subcommittees and Caucuses.  Please visit their websites to learn more about them.

Committees and Subcommittees

House Committee on Small Business
The House Small Business Committee was established to protect and assist small businesses.  As such, the Committee has jurisdiction over matters related to small business financial aid, regulatory flexibility, and paperwork reduction. Additionally, the House Small Business Committee has  oversight and legislative authority over the Small Business Administration (SBA) and its programs.

House Committee on Natural Resources
The House Natural Resources Committee considers legislation about American energy production, mineral lands and mining, fisheries and wildlife, public lands, oceans, Native Americans, irrigation and reclamation.

House Committee on Agriculture
The House Committee on Agriculture has general jurisdiction over federal agriculture policy and oversight of some federal agencies, and it can recommend funding appropriations for various governmental agencies, programs, and activities, as defined by House rules.


Western Caucus 
The mission of the Western Caucus is to enhance, sustain, and preserve the West’s dynamic and unique culture, and to find innovative solutions that address the distinctive concerns facing western and rural communities. We believe economic growth and conservation are not mutually exclusive goals and can be accomplished by promoting balanced, common-sense reforms.

Co-founder of the Congressional Small Business Caucus
Members of the Congressional Small Business Caucus are dedicated to advancing efforts to foster the economic certainty needed for small businesses and entrepreneurs to succeed and create jobs. 

Beef Caucus
The House Beef Caucus is committed to advocating for the U.S. beef and cattle industry through raising awareness of the issues impacting this industry. The Caucus educates and informs Members of Congress, and their staff, about U.S. cattle and beef production. Members are given the opportunity to speak about the importance of ranching in the U.S. and utilize opportunities to aid ranchers.

Natural Gas Caucus
The Congressional Natural Gas Caucus is a bipartisan group of Members dedicated to championing the use of clean, plentiful, domestic natural gas. We are committed to informing and educating Members of Congress, and the American people about this clean-burning domestic fuel. By promoting the use of natural gas we believe America will benefit from cleaner modes of transportation and energy generation, creating a cleaner environment and millions of new American jobs. We are focused on discovering environmentally-friendly ways to produce natural gas and explore the ways natural gas can help meet our country’s energy needs while leading us towards an independent energy future.

Republican Israel Caucus
The caucus connects Members and staff with leading Middle East policy analysts to deepen their understanding of the issues Israel faces amidst the ever-changing dynamic in the Middle East. Additionally, the caucus collaborates with policy experts, academics, the Israel and Jewish communities and Members to host events that help open the dialogue on the pertinent issues in the Middle East.  The Caucus often partners with the Democratic Israel Working Group in a bipartisan manner on Israel issues which concern people on both sides of the aisle.
