Cong. Gregg Harper has been appointed to the House Committee on the Judiciary and the Committee on House Administration for the 111th Congress.
“As the Republican representative on the Steering Committee, I worked hard to get the other freshman Republicans the best committee assignments possible,” said Harper. “I am very thankful for their cooperation and am pleased with the placement I have received from the Committee as well.”
The Judiciary Committee has jurisdiction over Federal courts and judges, constitutional amendments, as well as immigration policy, criminal law enforcement and national penitentiaries.
Harper was the only freshman appointed by Republican Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) to The Committee on House Administration. This oversight committee is responsible for monitoring congressional elections, the day-to-day functions of the House of Representatives, election law reform, House operations, Capitol Security and additionally, oversees the management of the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Institution.
