(WASHINGTON) -- United States Congressman Rob Bishop, representing Utah's 1st district, was named to the House Rules Committee on Wednesday. Bishop, who is also chairman of the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands, was appointed by Representative David Dreier of California.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to once again serve on the House Rules Committee and look forward to working with Speaker Boehner, Chairman Dreier and my colleagues on the committee to implement the historic new reforms made to the House Rules for the 112th Congress," Bishop said. He joins Congress members from seven other states on the committee.
“Rob Bishop is a natural addition to our new majority on the House Rules Committee,” Dreier said. “He was an excellent member when he served here previously and he has since proven himself to be one of the most thoughtful, diligent members of the House."
Bishop previously served on the rules committee from 2005-2007.
