The Leadership Connect team has created a “House Flip” series analyzing congressional committee Ranking Members, their key staff, and who may become committee Chairs since Republicans have taken the House for the 118th Congress
All Reelected Ranking Members Became Committee Chairs in the Last House Flip
Committee on Energy and Commerce
Chair Frank Pallone (D-NJ, 6) → Ranking Member Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA, 5)
If you need to work with this committee and track legislation, use Leadership Connect to develop relationships with the most influential people. Start off by seeing what bills may be introduced, who would be responsible for the text, and how you can connect with them.
Rodgers’ Chief of Staff has a limited network outside of politics.
The Energy & Commerce Staff Director Nate Hodson has lobbying firm and association connections from earlier in his career.
