WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Mike Bost (IL-12) was chosen by his House Republican colleagues to serve as the chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs for the 118th Congress.
“It is a deep honor to be selected by my colleagues to lead the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs,” Bost said. “As chairman, I will fight to hold the Biden administration accountable, restore regular order, and ensure our veterans get the benefits and care they deserve. Growing up in a military family and then enlisting in the Marine Corps myself, this mission has always been personal for me. Serving as chairman is a responsibility I do not take lightly; and I promise I will not let my veteran community down.”
Bost served as ranking member on the committee the previous two years.
