WASHINGTON – Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-Channahon) Wednesday was named Vice-Chair to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs’ Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade.
The House Committee on Foreign Affairs, chaired by Congressman Ed Royce (R-CA), considers legislation that impacts the diplomatic community, which includes the Department of State, the Agency for International Development, the Peace Corps, and the United Nations.
The Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade has oversight and legislative jurisdiction over U.S. efforts to manage and coordinate international programs to combat terrorism, as coordinated by the Department of State and other agencies, and efforts to bring international terrorists to justice.
“Now more than ever, it is critical that we remain vigilant in our efforts to protect the United States from those who would cause her harm,” said Kinzinger. “The Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade is on the frontline of that battle, and I’m honored to have the opportunity to serve as Vice-Chair.”
Congressman Kinzinger represents the 16th District of Illinois and serves on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. He is a veteran of the United States Air Force and currently serves in the Air National Guard.
