WASHINGTON, D.C.—Education and Labor Committee Member Russ Fulcher has announced his appointment to serve as Ranking Member of the Civil Rights and Human Services Subcommittee.

Congressman Fulcher released the following statement on his new position as the Subcommittee Ranking Member:

“It is an honor to be selected as Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Human Services. This subcommittee handles important issues - many of which we have found bipartisan agreement on in the past. I look forward to continuing to support these areas of common ground, including the Older Americans Act to help seniors become self-empowered, and the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) to strengthen the efforts of local organizations advocating for our children. As businesses recover from a government shutdown, I will be a voice to ensure they aren’t further burdened by additional regulations and employment issues to impede their revival.”
