Congressman Blum Named Chairman of Small Business Subcommittee on Agriculture, Energy, and Trade
Rep. Blum also maintains post on House Oversight and Government Reform Committee
Today Congressman Rod Blum (R-IA) announced that he will chair the Small Business Committee subcommittee on Agriculture, Energy, and Trade for the 115th Congress, as well as continue his role on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee for a second term.
“Throughout his first term in Congress, Rod Blum has shown himself to be a true friend and advocate for small businesses in Iowa and across our nation,” said Small Business Committee Chairman Steve Chabot. “In just his few first days on the Small Business Committee, Congressman Blum has already been a great source of ideas and enthusiasm. His own small business experience makes him a great fit to lead our Agriculture, Energy and Trade Subcommittee, and we can’t wait to get to work.”
The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has legislative jurisdiction over the District of Columbia, the government procurement process, federal personnel systems, the Postal Service and other matters. The committee's primary responsibility, however, is oversight of virtually everything government does – from national security to homeland security grants, from federal workforce policies to regulatory reform and reorganization authority, from information technology procurements at individual agencies to government-wide data security standards.
Rod Blum is the Republican Congressman from Iowa’s 1st District. He is a member of the Oversight and Small Business Committees and chair of the Subcommittee on Agriculture, Energy, and Trade.
