The Committee is awaiting two additional member assignments from the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee. These lists are subject to updates.

“I am honored that my colleagues have supported me for this important position, and grateful to Ranking Member Grijalva and outgoing Ranking Member Napolitano for their leadership,” said Rep. Jared Huffman, the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Water, Power and Oceans. “As Ranking Member of the newly created Water, Power, and Oceans Subcommittee, I know we’ll have our work cut out for us to restore fisheries, improve West-wide water supply reliability, and protect our coastline. I have been privileged to work on a number of statewide water successes in my career, and I look forward to tackling the complex natural resource issues that we face in a constructive, problem-solving manner.”
 
“The Third District of Massachusetts is home to some of the most cherished conservation land and historic areas in New England,” said Rep. Niki Tsongas, the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Federal Lands. “We have a long-standing practice in the Commonwealth of preserving natural habitats and protecting open spaces for public benefit, and I will draw from that tradition as I take on this leadership role. I am honored to have earned the respect of my colleagues and look forward to using this opportunity to work across the aisle for the preservation and growth of all the diverse, beautiful and historic lands spread across our great nation.”
 
“I am honored to be serving as the lead Democrat on the Energy and Mineral Resources Subcommittee, where I will help focus our efforts on renewable energy development, climate change, and the safe and responsible development of resources on our public lands,” said Rep. Alan Lowenthal, the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources.
 
“Our tribes are vital to the fabric of our community and nation, and I am proud to represent eleven tribal nations in California’s 36th district,” said Rep. Raul Ruiz, the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Indian, Insular and Alaska Native Affairs. “As the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Indian, Insular, and Alaska Native Affairs, I will work with my Democratic and Republican colleagues to find real solutions to issues facing our tribes like improving healthcare, education, and economic growth, while vigilantly supporting the sovereignty of all the nations of Indian Country.”
 
“I look forward to working with my colleagues to ensure government is doing what it is supposed to do to protect our nation’s natural resources,” said Rep. Debbie Dingell, the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations.
