Rep. Artur Davis Fills Open Seat on House Administration

Rep. Artur Davis (D-Ala.) has been tapped by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to fill the opening on the House Administration Committee left after panel Chairwoman Juanita Millender-McDonald (D-Calif.) died last month following a battle with cancer.

Davis was introduced at a full committee hearing this morning that was lead by acting Chairman Robert Brady (D-Pa.). At that hearing several members on both sides of the aisle warmly remembered the late chairwoman.

A close friend of Millender-McDonald, Davis was granted a special waiver by Pelosi to keep his two other panel seats on the House Ways and Means and Judiciary committees while serving on the House Administration panel. He also serves on the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee.

“While I certainly wish that I had come on the committee under different circumstances, I am honored to serve on a panel which regulates federal election law and has significant responsibility for Congressional operations,” Davis said in a release Thursday.
