WASHINGTON — Rep. James Comer (R-KY), the ranking member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, has appointed U.S. Rep. Yvette Herrell, R-New Mexico, as the new ranking member of the Environment Subcommittee.

“I am honored to be appointed Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on the Environment by my friend, Ranking Member Kamer,” said Rep. Herrell. “I am excited about the opportunity to speak up for my constituents who have been subjected to this administration’s reckless, single-minded executive actions. I will work to ensure oversight of executive branch actions that have driven up energy prices, hurt American agriculture, and ignored the experiences of local families and businesses. I am proud to champion New Mexico’s environmental heritage and lead the Republican members on the Environment Subcommittee.”

“Rep. Harrell is a leader on energy and environmental issues, and we are thrilled to have her serve as the Republican Leader of the Subcommittee on the Environment,” said Ranking Member Comer. “As a lifelong New Mexican, Representative Herrell understands the importance of preserving the environment for all and ensuring Americans have access to affordable clean energy to power their homes and fuel their cars. The Biden administration has waged war on domestic energy production, and Rep. Herrell is fighting to protect Americans whose jobs and livelihoods depend on the industry. We look forward to Representative Herrell leading our oversight of the Biden administration’s radical New Green Deal policies that are harming Americans across the country.”
