WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Bobby L. Rush (D-Ill.) was reelected today to the position of Ranking Democratic Member of the Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Energy and Power. Following his re-election, Rush said:
“First, to my constituents of Illinois’ 1st Congressional District it is an honor to serve you in the 114th Congress.
“Second, I would like to thank my Democratic colleagues on the Energy and Commerce Committee for reelecting me to once again serve as the Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on Energy and Power.”
A strong supporter of Rep. Frank Pallone’s (D-NJ) bid for Ranking Democratic Member of the Full Committee on Energy and Commerce, Rush added, “I am honored to once again hold this position and I look forward to continuing to work with Ranking Member Pallone, Chairman Fred Upton (R.-Mich.) and the rest of my colleagues, on both sides of the aisle, to produce legislation that will benefit our great country.”
