Congressional leadership announced yesterday it has appointed U.S. Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler to serve on the U.S. Joint Economic Committee, a bipartisan panel of members of Congress from both the House and Senate. The primary tasks of the committee members are to review U.S. economic conditions and make needed policy improvements to benefit American families.
“Since I was first elected to Congress, I have been laser-focused on creating a better economic future by championing legislation to spur better-paying jobs, lowering taxes to help employers reinvest capital in their workers, and seeking solutions to improve health care for Southwest Washington families. It’s an honor to serve on the U.S. Joint Economic Committee where I will continue to seek solutions that result in higher paychecks and plentiful job opportunities,” Herrera Beutler said.
House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy appointed Herrera Beutler to this committee with this statement:“Jaime is leading American workers into the 21st Century with vision and strategy. Most recently, Jaime reintroduced the bipartisan Championing Apprenticeships for New Careers and Employees in Technology (CHANCE in Tech) Act, which aims to create training programs in STEM fields to address a growing skills gap that is leaving middle class Americans behind while American technology companies charge forward. With this foresight, along with her history of supporting small businesses that create jobs in southwest Washington, Jaime will bring a unique and experiential perspective to the Joint Economic Committee.”
