U.S. Representative Daniel Webster (FL-10) today issued the following statement on his appointment to the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Rules for a second consecutive term:

“With wide-sweeping jurisdiction and the responsibility of overseeing the content, as well as the terms and conditions of consideration, of nearly every bill that comes to the House floor, the Rules Committee allows me to represent Central Floridians’ interests across many policy areas at critical points in the formulation of bills. The Rules Committee also gives me an avenue to work towards opening up the process here in Washington to ensure transparency and accountability. I’m pleased to accept this committee assignment and look forward to working with Chairman Pete Sessions and my Rules Committee colleagues over the coming term,” said Webster.

“I am delighted to have my dear friend and colleague, Daniel Webster, return to the Rules Committee in the 113th Congress,” said Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX). “The committee will benefit from his legislative expertise, and I look forward to working with him to continue our success of making the House fair, transparent, and accountable for the American people.”
