WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today announced the appointment of Rep. Candice Miller (R-MI) as chairman of the House Administration Committee for the 113th Congress:
“From ensuring the House runs efficiently and smoothly, to making Congress more open and accessible, Candice has a big job ahead as chairman of the House Administration Committee. In her new post, Candice will provide the leadership needed to keep operating costs down, save taxpayer dollars, and help lawmakers use new technology to better engage with their constituents. And her experience as Michigan Secretary of State will be invaluable given the committee’s oversight of campaign finance and election laws.
“Having helped implement new legislative data standards, approved the use of new low-cost digital tools for Members of Congress, and more, the House Administration Committee has been at the forefront of many of our open government initiatives. I know we’ll continue to make big advances with Candice at the helm.”
