Ã¢â‚¬Å“The American people have loudly stated that this country needs a change in direction and by electing a Democratic majority, they have given us an opportunity to enact policies that will benefit all Americans. To accomplish this goal and retain our majority, we will need an effective team in place when the Democratic majority is sworn-in in January. My work on the Rules CommitteeÃ¢â‚¬â€where I have collaborated extensively with Leadership, Ranking Members, and Members of all of the committees of the HouseÃ¢â‚¬â€has given me critical insight into the necessity of bringing the right balance of talents and viewpoints to the HouseÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s committees.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I thank Speaker Pelosi for the trust she has placed in me with this appointment and I look forward to working with my colleagues on the Steering and Policy Committee to put together the committee assignments that will create an effective team and ensure our long-term success.Ã¢â‚¬Â
