WASHINGTON, DC — Congressman James P. McGovern (D-MA), incoming chairman of the House Committee on Rules, today congratulated Congressman Tom Cole (R-OK) on being named ranking member of the committee for the 116th Congress:                                                                                                             

“Congressman Cole is a valued colleague and a friend. We have worked together in Congress on issues like the authorization for the use of military force and side-by-side in the Rules Committee for years now. He’s a fierce defender of his ideas who cares deeply about this institution. We haven’t always agreed, but Congressman Cole is proof that you can disagree without being disagreeable. I congratulate him on being named ranking member of the Rules Committee and look forward to continuing to work with him next Congress.”
