WASHINGTON, DC -- NJ-11 Representative Mikie Sherrill was unanimously chosen by her House Science, Space, and Technology Committee colleagues to serve as chair of the Environment Subcommittee on Thur., Jan. 9. The Subcommittee on Environment oversees environmental climate change and weather research.

“New Jerseyans know the importance of clean air, clean drinking water, and protecting our natural resources,” said Representative Sherrill. “Our state has the largest investment in offshore wind in the country, and I look forward to further promoting this important innovation to protect our environment. As chair, I will be able to more directly support critical environmental research that grows our clean energy economy, improves our national security and secures New Jersey’s future.”

“We made great progress in 2019, and I look forward to another productive year working with our new and returning subcommittee chairs and members as we continue to pursue a constructive and bipartisan legislative agenda to advance our nation’s research, development and innovation enterprise and find solutions to the many challenges facing our nation today,” said Science, Space, and Technology Committee Chair Eddie Bernice Johnson (TX-30).
