Bilirakis Appointed as Lead Republican on Key Subcommittee


Earlier today Congressman Gus Bilirakis was named the Ranking Member of the Consumer Protection and Commerce (CPC) Subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.  The jurisdiction of this important subcommittee includes: consumer protection, interstate and foreign commerce, data security, privacy matters, product safety and liability, motor vehicle safety and the regulation of commercial activity including: sports-related matters, travel, tourism, and time.


“In this new role, I will work to protect all Americans from predatory scams, investigate potential social media monopolies, encourage and spur innovation of emerging technologies, and defend against security breaches involving sensitive consumer data.  This position also provides a unique opportunity to help the travel and tourism industry - which is vital to Florida’s economy and job market - as it seeks to fully rebound from the global pandemic.   As always, my constituents can be assured that I will remain focused on ensuring quality and affordable healthcare options for all Americans  and that I will never stop advocating for our nation’s heroes, as well as seniors and the diaabled.  I look forward to working with my colleagues to restore our way of life, rebuild our economy, and renew the American Dream,” said Congressman Gus Bilirakis.


In addition to this new leadership position on the CPC Subcommittee, Bilirakis will remain a Member on the Health and the Communication and Technology Subcommittees.
