Steube Named to House Foreign Affairs Committee for the 117th Congress
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Greg Steube (R-Fla.) has been appointed to the House Foreign Affairs Committee for the 117th Congress.
“As the Biden Administration takes drastic moves to unravel our foreign affairs victories, like signaling intent to rejoin the JCPOA or taking a ‘patient’ approach to our adversaries in China, we need warriors on the House Foreign Affairs Committee who will be truly committed to protecting U.S. international interests,” Steube said. “I am honored to be given this opportunity to play an active role in U.S diplomatic missions and represent Floridians as we stand up to terrorism, socialism, and human rights abuses.”
Steube joins Florida colleagues, U.S. Representatives Brian Mast (R-Fla.) and Maria Elvira Salazar (R-Fla.) on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. All have shown a commitment to working together in support of U.S. diplomatic interests in different regions of the world.
This assignment is in addition to Steube’s continued role on the House Judiciary Committee, where he serves on the following Subcommittees:
- Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security
- Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law
- Immigration and Citizenship
Steube’s background is in both military service and law. Immediately after graduating from the University of Florida with undergraduate and law degrees, Steube answered the call to serve in the War on Terror following the September 11 attacks. Enlisting in the U.S. Army, he served with distinction from 2004 to 2008 as an Airborne Infantry Officer and a JAG Corps Officer. Steube served as the Chief of Detainee Operations for Multinational Division North in Iraq with the 25th Infantry Division in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom from 2006-2007.
