WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Yvette Herrell (R-NM) has has been named as the new Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on the Environment by Rep. James Comer (R-KY), Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform.

"I am honored to be appointed the Ranking Member of the Environment Subcommittee by my friend, Ranking Member Comer," said Representative Herrell. "I am excited for the opportunity to stand up for my constituents who have been railroaded by reckless, one-size-fits all executive actions by this administration. I will work to provide oversight over executive actions that have increased energy prices, harmed American agriculture, and ignored the expertise of local families and businesses. I am proud to champion New Mexico's legacy of environmental stewardship and lead Republican members on the Environment Subcommittee."

"Representative Herrell is a leader on energy and environment issues, and we are thrilled to have her serve as the Republican Leader on the Environment Subcommittee," said Ranking Member Comer. "As a lifelong New Mexican, Representative Herrell understands the importance of preserving our environment for all to enjoy and ensuring Americans' access to affordable, clean energy to power their homes and fuel their cars. The Biden Administration has waged war on domestic energy production and Representative Herrell is fighting to protect the Americans whose jobs and livelihoods rely on this industry. We look forward to Representative Herrell leading our oversight of the Biden Administration's radical Green New Deal policies that are harming Americans nationwide."
