Walberg Secures Spot on Communications and Technology Subcommittee
Washington, D.C.—Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07), a member of the powerful House Committee on Energy and Commerce, today was appointed to the Subcommittee on Communications and Technology for the 116th Congress. In addition to this new assignment, Walberg will continue serving on the Subcommittee on Energy.
“Having a seat on the Communications and Technology Subcommittee gives our district an even stronger voice on the issues that impact their daily lives,” said Congressman Walberg. “It is critical Michigan remains a leader in innovation and citizens in rural communities have the ability to succeed in the 21st century economy. In this next term, I look forward to advocating for solutions to improve our nation’s communications infrastructure, expand access to high-speed broadband, and spur technological breakthroughs and economic opportunity.”
“Since joining our committee, Congressman Walberg has proven himself to be an effective and top-notch legislator. I’m confident Tim will bring that same results-oriented leadership to the Communications and Technology Subcommittee as we continue to champion policies that foster innovation and close the digital divide,” said Energy and Commerce Republican Leader Greg Walden.
The Subcommittee on Communications and Technology has jurisdiction over issues related to electronic communications; emergency and public safety communications; cybersecurity, privacy, and data security; the Federal Communications Commission; and more.
