WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) released the following statement on his appointment to serve on the U.S. House Committee on Education and the Workforce.
“I am honored to have been appointed to serve on the U.S. House Committee on Education and the Workforce, and look forward to working with Ranking Member, Rep. Bobby Scott of Virginia and committee members to continue ensuring that the needs of our students and workers are addressed with policies that help to prepare us all for a competitive global society.
“This committee is also very special to me as it was once chaired by the honorable Rep. Adam Clayton Powell Jr., from 1961 – 1967, which at that time was the most powerful position to have ever been held by an African American member of the U.S. Congress. I am committed to continuing Congressman Powell’s legacy on the House Committee on Education and the Workforce and working with my colleagues to keep our country strong with opportunities for our students and workers.
