U.S. Rep. Marcia L. Fudge announces committee assignments

U.S. Rep. Marcia L. Fudge, D-Warrensville Heights, has announced her committee assignments for the 114th Congress.

Fudge was elected Jan. 28 as Ranking Member of the House Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education.

This Subcommittee is part of the House Education and the Workforce Committee on which the Congresswoman first served in 2009. She will also serve as a member of the Subcommittee on Workforce Protections.

“I welcome the challenge and the opportunity to ensure that all of America’s children have access to a quality education,” Fudge said in a statement. “We must advance policies and priorities that provide adequate funding, equitably allocate resources, and ensure that all students graduate from high school are college and career ready.”

Fudge also remains on the House Agriculture Committee for which she was appointed to the Subcommittees on Nutrition, and Biotechnology, Horticulture and Research.

The congresswoman represents Ohio's 11th Congressional District, which includes Euclid and other portions of eastern and southern Cuyahoga County along with portions of Summit County and the city of Akron.
