House Committee on Education and Labor
U.S. House of Representatives

Rep. Howard P. “Buck” McKeon
Ranking Member

Fiscally responsible reforms for students, workers and retirees.


Labor Issues


When it comes to our nation’s workforce training programs, accountability for the taxpayer dollar and flexibility for workers and job seekers are principles that guide Committee Republican efforts. 

However, simply spending more money is not the answer to the problems facing American workers. That’s why insisting on accountability and flexibility is essential.  In the 111th Congress, Republicans will not lose sight of this fact.
