Iowa's Miller-Meeks to serve on U.S. House Homeland Security Committee

(Washington D.C.) -- Iowa 2nd District Congresswoman Mariannette Miller-Meeks will serve on the House Homeland Security, Veterans’ Affairs and Education and Labor committees.

“These assignments directly highlight my strengths and experience as well as the priorities I expressed as I sought office: resolving this pandemic and preparing for future pandemics; ensuring the health of our citizens craving more normal human interactions and engagement at home, school, work, church and entertainment venues; safely returning people to work and students to the classroom; making sure that we have a workforce that is well trained and ready for the jobs of the future; and seeing that we have affordable, accessible healthcare,” said Miller-Meeks. “I’m ready to get to work on behalf of Iowans.”

Miller-Meeks, a physician and 24-year U.S. Army veteran, notes that the Homeland Security Committee has legislative jurisdiction over the National Strategic Stockpile.

Miller-Meeks says her role on the Education and Labor and Veterans’ Affairs Committee will ensure the University of Iowa, the Iowa City VA Hospital, the UI Hospitals and Clinics and its affiliated institutions have a stronger voice in Washington.
