• Rep. Candice Miller (Michigan)[Corrected 8:48 pm 12-23-10], chairman, Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security (Formerly - Subcommittee on Border, Maritime and Global Counterterrorism)There is a fairly substantial re-working of sub-committee assignments reflected in the new list of Chairs. Only two of the newly appointed Chair (Miller and Lungren) served as Ranking Member in the same Sub-Committee in the 111th Congress. The remaining Chair listed were not even members of the respective Sub-Committee in the current Congress.
• Rep. Patrick Meehan (Pennsylvania), chairman, Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence (Formerly - Subcommittee on Intelligence, Information Sharing and Terrorism Risk Assessment)
• Rep. Dan Lungren (California), chairman, Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection, and Security Technologies (Formerly - Subcommittee on Emerging Threats, Cybersecurity, and Science and Technology)
• Rep. Gus Bilirakis (Florida), chairman, Subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Communications (Formerly - Subcommittee on Emergency Communications, Preparedness, and Response)
• Rep. Michael T. McCaul (Texas), chairman, Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations, and Management (Formerly - Subcommittee on Management, Investigations, and Oversight)
• Rep. Mike Rogers (Alabama), chairman, Subcommittee on Transportation Security (Formerly Subcommittee on Transportation Security and Infrastructure Protection)
All of these sub-committees will have some coverage of issues of interest to the chemical security community. The two major sub-committees for chemical security legislation, however, will be the subcommittees chaired by Rep. Lungren and Rep. Rogers.
