Sec. of Labor
Hilda Solis

Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter released the following statement on the resignation of Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis.

“I have been privileged to call Secretary Solis a friend both in Congress and at the Department of Labor,” said Congresswoman Shea-Porter, who served with Secretary Solis in the House of Representatives. “Secretary Solis’ public service has been remarkable and stands as an example for our country. I wish her well in her future endeavors, and I now look forward to working closely with the next Secretary of Labor on the critical issues facing New Hampshire and our workers.”

Congresswoman Kuster Appointed to House Veterans’ Affairs Committee

One of the most bipartisan committees in the House of Representatives, Veterans’ Affairs provides oversight of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and has jurisdiction over critical issues including servicemember pensions, veterans’ hospitals and medical care, and vocational training and education for veterans returning to civilian life.

“I’m proud to receive this appointment to the Veterans’ Affairs Committee, and to have this opportunity to advocate for the courageous veterans, servicemembers, and military families who have sacrificed so much for our country,” said Kuster.  “In the coming weeks and months, I look forward to meeting with veterans and veteran advocates across New Hampshire’s Second District and being a strong voice for them in Congress. On the Veterans’ Affairs Committee, I will work with members of both parties to strengthen health care benefits, cut bureaucratic red tape, expand job opportunities, and properly honor the dedicated men and women who have worn the uniform of the United States and deserve nothing less than our full, unwavering support.”
