Committee Assignments

Committees in the House have four primary powers: to conduct hearings and investigations, to draft bills and resolutions and amendments to them, to report legislation to the House for its possible consideration, and to oversee executive branch performance. Committees are integral to the work of Congress in determining the policy needs of the nation and acting on them. Representative Ford serves on the following committees:
