Congressman Elect Carter Committee Assignments

Republican Congressman Elect Buddy Carter (GA-1) has been named to 3 committees for his freshman term: Homeland Security, Education and Workforce, and Oversight and Government Reform. The following is from a recent press release:

The assignments give Carter a key role in national debates including the fight over immigration enforcement and the devaststing impact of Obamacare as well as issues of special importance to the First District like port security.

“We are going to hit the ground running in each of these committees to bring commonsense back to the federal government,” said Carter.  “With every hearing and vote, I will look to make government more efficient and effective and to position our district and our country to meet the challenges of the future.”

As the only pharmacist in Congress, Carter will also be well positioned to fight for repeal of Obamacare and to make health care more affordable, accessible, and patient-centered.

Prior to being elected to the 114th Congress, Congressman Elect Carter served in the Georgia General Assembly as the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Public Safety.
