WASHINGTON, DC - House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today announced that Maryam Brown will join the Office of the Speaker as energy policy advisor.  Brown has served as Chief Counsel to the Energy & Commerce Subcommittee on Energy & Power since the beginning of the 112th Congress, advising Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI), Subcommittee Chairman Ed Whitfield (R-KY), and other members of the committee on a range of energy and environmental policy issues.

“As Chief Counsel to the Energy & Power subcommittee, Maryam Brown has worked tirelessly to secure House passage of numerous American Energy Initiative bills aimed at reining in excessive regulations and promoting projects like the Keystone pipeline to help put Americans back to work,” Boehner said. “Her experience and expertise will be a critical asset to our House majority in the next Congress as we continue advancing an agenda focused on expanding American energy and creating jobs.  I’m proud to welcome her aboard.”
