Laurel Lee Named to a Third Congressional Committee

Starting her work on Capitol Hill, new U.S. Rep. Laurel Lee, R-Fla., announced this week that she was assigned to a third committee.

Lee was named to the U.S. House Committee on House Administration. Last week, she was named to the U.S. Homeland Security and the Judiciary Committees.

“It is an honor to be named to the Committee on House Administration under Chairman Bryan Steil,” said Lee. “The committee works to keep the ‘People’s House’ open and oversees our nation’s elections. As a former secretary of state and chief elections official for Florida, I bring firsthand experience to the committee on how to oversee and run a successful election. Florida leads the way in conducting efficient, secure, and accurate elections, and its policies are a model for other states. I will work to protect the integrity and security of our elections nationwide and to build voter confidence in our election process. Thank you, Chairman Steil and Speaker McCarthy for entrusting me with this important responsibility and I look forward to working with the committee for the 118th Congress.”“

Lee served as an assistant public defender and an assistant U.S. attorney before then-Gov. Rick Scott named her as a judge on the Hillsborough County Circuit Court in 2013. In 2019, Gov. Ron DeSantis tapped her to serve as Florida’s secretary of state.
