Reps Aguilar & Torres Get Committee Assignments

(January 22) The newest members of the Inland House of Representatives delegation now have committee assignments.
Congressman Pete Aguilar, D-Redlands, who has replaced Gary Miller as congressman in the 31st  District, was appointed to the House Armed Services and Agriculture committees.
“I look forward to serving the tens of thousands military personnel and veterans who call the Inland Empire home as a member of the Armed Services Committee,” said Aguilar. “These proud men and women need a voice in Congress who will fight for our military and work to create defense jobs and grow renewable energy and manufacturing in San Bernardino County.”
Aguilar said, “Agriculture has been a key part of our region’s economy for generations, and I will work to strengthen this industry and the jobs it supports on the Agriculture Committee.”
Congresswoman Norma Torres, D-Pomona, who replaced Gloria Negrete-McLeod as the representative in the 35th Congressional District earlier this month, was given an assignment on the Homeland Security committee.
“The issues that come before the Homeland Security Committee are of critical importance to my state and my district. The 35th district is home to Ontario International Airport and serves as an inland port through which goods from the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are transported to the rest of the country. Protecting our nation’s infrastructure and ensuring the effective implementation of security regulations are vital to the region’s economy.”
