ESHOO ELECTED CHAIR OF HOUSE HEALTH SUBCOMMITTEE

January 15th, 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) released the following statement after Democratic Members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee voted to elect her to chair the Health Subcommittee:

“The 2018 midterm elections were won on the issue of health care and the American people now expect us to deliver. I’m grateful to my colleagues for choosing me to help lead the effort in the House to strengthen the Affordable Care Act, reduce the price of prescription drugs, and continue to make critically important investments in the National Institutes of Health.”

Rep. Eshoo was elected to the Energy and Commerce Committee in 1995, and has served on the Health Subcommittee for 14 of her 24 years on the Committee. Of the 41 bills she has authored that have been signed into law by four presidents, more than half have been health related. The Energy and Commerce Committee is the oldest continuous standing committee in the U.S. House of Representatives. It was originally established in 1795 to regulate interstate and foreign commerce. Today, the Committee has the broadest jurisdiction of any authorizing committee in Congress.
