Fischbach appointed to Rules Committee

District 7 Congresswoman Michelle Fischbach has been reappointed to the Rules Committee by Speaker McCarthy.

“I am looking forward to continuing to serve on Congress’ oldest standing committee,” Rep. Fischbach said. “I am eager to serve as a voice for rural Minnesota on a committee that sees every piece of legislation that comes to the House Floor, and to restore accountability, transparency, and normal order to this institution.”

Formed in 1789, the Rules Committee is responsible for determining the means by which the House considers legislation, as well as the chamber’s rules.
