WASHINGTON – U.S. House Science, Space, and Technology Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) today announced the appointment of Rep. Ralph Abraham (R-La.) as chairman of the Oversight Subcommittee. Abraham previously served as vice chairman of the Research and Technology Subcommittee.
Chairman Smith: “Rep. Ralph Abraham will provide strong leadership of the Oversight Subcommittee as we work to strengthen America’s cybersecurity capabilities and ensure accountability to taxpayers. Rep. Abraham is a medical doctor, a veterinarian, a veteran and a business owner. His broad experience will serve the Subcommittee well. He will be a great chairman.”
Chairman Abraham: “It’s always an honor when peers select you to a position of authority, and I take that responsibility seriously. This is a subcommittee where we can not only highlight contentious areas of our nation’s problems, but we can also explore how to fix them. I will use a strong, but fair, gavel to ensure the oversight process is carried out to the people’s benefit.”
Smith today also announced the appointment of Rep. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) as vice chairman of the Research and Technology Subcommittee and Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.) as vice chairman of the Oversight Subcommittee.
