McMorris Rodgers swaps committees

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers moved onto the House Energy and Commerce Committee and off the Armed Services, Natural Resources and Education and Labor committees.

She'll serve on three E & C subcommittees: Energy and Power, Environment and the Economy, and Health. From those, the Eastern Washington Republican said, she'll be involved in issues that include health care, technology and energy independence.

E & C has oversight for the departments of Energy, Transportation, and Health and Human Services, as well as the Environmental Protection Agency.
