Committees and Caucuses

Congressman Collins serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee in the 114th Congress. He currently serves on three Subcommittees: the Communications and Technology Subcommittee, Health Subcommittee, and Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee.

  • Communications and Technology: The C&T Subcommittee has focused on creating jobs and spurring investment and innovation in this growing sector while fighting counterproductive regulation of the Internet domestically and abroad. Its legislative accomplishments include landmark spectrum reforms to expand Americans’ access to high-speed Internet and ‘good government’ improvements to the work of the FCC.
  • Health: The Health Subcommittee has developed key reforms to promote medical advancement, support market-based improvements to our health care system and reject heavy-handed government control.
  • Oversight and Investigations: With its responsibility to oversee all agencies and programs within the committee's jurisdiction, the O&I Subcommittee has launched investigations into a broad range of topics and uncovered major instances of government waste, fraud, and abuse. This includes high-profile investigations into Solyndra, the health care law, Medicare fraud and abuse, wasteful grant programs, and numerous other inquiries ultimately designed to protect taxpayers.
