House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) announced on Friday the appointment of Rep. Candice Miller (R-MI) as chairman of the House Administration Committee for the 113th Congress.
“From ensuring the House runs efficiently and smoothly, to making Congress more open and accessible, Candice has a big job ahead as chairman of the House Administration Committee," Boehner said in a statement. "In her new post, Candice will provide the leadership needed to keep operating costs down, save taxpayer dollars, and help lawmakers use new technology to better engage with their constituents."
House Republicans were previously criticized for not appointing any women or minorities to committee chairmanships.
