King named to three panels in U.S. House

Republican from Kiron to be on House Judiciary Committee

U.S. Rep. Steve King has been named to three committees in the House of Representatives and will be the chairman of a subcommittee.

The Republican from Kiron will once again be a member of the House Judiciary Committee.

He will also be the chairman of that panel’s Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice.

“As a full spectrum constitutional conservative, I am a strong believer in the rule of law and I always carry a copy of the Constitution in my coat pocket,” King said in a written statement.

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Virginia, described King as a “valuable member” of it.

“His expertise on many of the issues facing our nation and the committee make him well-suited to serve as chairman of the Constitution and Civil Justice Subcommittee,” Goodlatte said in a written statement. “I look forward to working with him as we seek to safeguard Americans’ liberties and promote an efficient and just legal system.”

King will also serve on the House Agriculture and Small Business committees.

“Representing the leading agricultural district in the nation and as the founder of a small business, I look forward to working with my fellow members on both sides of the aisle as we strive to lead on the issues facing Iowa and our nation,” King said.
