Press Release

Washington, D.C.—This week, Representative Josh Harder (CA-10) was appointed to serve on the House Committee on Education and Labor for the 116th Congress. The goal of this committee is to ensure federal policy effectively empowers our students in and outside the classroom so that the United States leads the way in preparing the next generation of leaders. The committee also oversees initiatives that strengthen the U.S. economy by empowering our workforce and overseeing labor initiatives aimed at improving health care, job training, pensions, and all issues impacting the wellbeing of employees in the workplace.

 

Rep. Harder sought appointment to this committee because it allows him to utilize his background in education and business to bring better paying jobs to the Central Valley and provide our communities with state-of-the-art workforce development training. A businessman and former educator at Modesto Junior College, Harder will fight for policies that boost student performance and grow our economy here in CA-10.

 

Announcements for potential future committee assignments will come in the next few weeks.

 

Rep. Josh Harder released the following statement:

 

“Serving on the Education and Labor Committee allows me to directly advocate for the Central Valley on the issues that matter to our families—better paying jobs, worker’s health care access, retirement readiness, job training and adult education, and the success of the next generation of leaders. I am honored to have this opportunity.”
