 “I am honored to serve on these critical committees in the 118th Congress,” said Congresswoman Ross. “As always, I remain committed to championing equality, justice, and transparency as well as advancing commonsense solutions for my constituents. I will continue to use my positions on these committees to fight for Wake County and deliver tangible results for the American people.”

 Congresswoman Ross previously served on the House Committee on the Judiciary and as Vice Chair of the Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties during the 117th Congress. She brings decades of legal experience in both the private and public sector to the committee.
