The House Democratic Caucus today approved the nominations of the following Members to serve on the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct in the 111th Congress:
Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren of California as Chair of the committee
Congressman Ben Chandler of Kentucky
Congressman G.K. Butterfield of North Carolina
Congresswoman Kathy Castor of Florida
Congressman Peter Welch of Vermont
Each of these Members appointed to serve on the Ethics Committee has shown strong commitment to the integrity of the House of Representatives. I am confident they will continue their dedication by holding House Members to the highest ethical standards.
The Ethics Committee will continue the work of strengthening Americans' faith in the institution of Congress, and these newly appointed Members will take the serious and substantive steps to do so.
