House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop Announces Republican Members for 114th Congress, New Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations


WASHINGTON, D.C., January 13, 2015 - U.S. House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop (UT-01) today announced the roster of Republican members who will serve on the committee and five subcommittees in the 114th Congress, and the creation of a new subcommittee that will have jurisdiction over all committee oversight matters.

“Over the next two years, the House Natural Resources Committee will pursue an active legislative agenda and provide aggressive oversight of the Obama Administration,” said Chairman Bishop. “Today, I am proud to announce the Republican members of the committee for the 114th Congress.  These are knowledgeable and dedicated public servants who will play a vital role in strengthening America’s Federal lands and modernizing related natural resource management policies. I look forward to working with them and with the full committee during this legislative session.”

“Given the increased need for congressional oversight of the Executive Branch’s actions and regulations, I am also pleased to announce the formation of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. This restructuring will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of committee operations,” Chairman Bishop added.
