WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Jim McGovern (D-MA) released the following statement following his appointment as Ranking Member of the U.S. House Rules Committee:

“I am deeply grateful to Leader Pelosi for this opportunity to serve. I am humbled by the support of my Democratic colleagues. And I am eager to continue our work together to advance a bold agenda that reflects the priorities of the American people.

“My friend and mentor, Massachusetts Congressman Joe Moakley, once held this seat – he was appointed by a fellow Massachusetts member of Congress, Speaker Thomas P. ‘Tip’ O’Neill Jr., who also served on the Rules Committee. I am inspired by their example and I know they are both with me in spirit as I take on this new responsibility. It is a great honor for me to continue their proud legacy on the Rules Committee.”
