Miller is only FL Congressman with a chairmanship. FL shunned by Boehner and crew

With the exception of our Congressman Jeff Miller (R-Chumuckla), Florida’s 27-member House delegation was shut out of chairmanships of any of the 21 permanent committees in the House. Miller chairs for a second term the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee.

Other key GOP state–Texas, California and Michigan– have at least three chairmanships, with Texas and Michigan combining for eight of the 21 spots.

The two Florida Republicans that held chairmanships in the last Congress had to surrender their leadership positions because of GOP term-limit rules for committee chairmanships.
