Washington, D.C. – House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi announced today that the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee recommended and the House Democratic Caucus approved the appointment of Congressman Mark Pocan to the House Education and Workforce Committee in the 113th Congress.
“The Education and Workforce Committee will be well-served by the talent of Congressman Mark Pocan,” said House Democratic Leader Pelosi. “A proven problem-solver with a staunch commitment to working families, he will continue to promote polices that create jobs, strengthen the middle class, and ensure a more prosperous future for all. From his constituents in Wisconsin to his colleagues in Washington, Congressman Pocan’s leadership is respected and valued.”
On the Education and Workforce Committee, he replaces Congressman John Yarmuth, who was appointed to the Energy and Commerce Committee last month.
