Senator Marshall Appointed Ranking Member for Subcommittee on Primary Health and Retirement Security
(Washington, D.C., February 27, 2023) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. announced today that he will serve as Ranking Member for the Subcommittee on Primary Health and Retirement Security. Additionally, Senator Marshall will serve on the Subcommittee for Employment and Workplace Safety. Both subcommittees fall under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP).
On his new leadership position on the Subcommittee on Primary Health and Retirement Security, Senator Marshall said,
“I’m looking forward to leading the Subcommittee on Primary Health and Retirement Security with Chairman Markey. A single member cannot work alone if they wish to solve health challenges, like improving mental health care and addressing the rise of illicit, deadly fentanyl, that are prevalent in every corner of our country. Along with tackling these health threats, keeping Americans healthy allows them to work longer and contribute more to their retirement accounts. Our subcommittee’s mission should be to advance meaningful bills that will help Americans enjoy full careers that lead to financially secure senior years.”
The Subcommittee on Primary Health and Retirement Security has jurisdiction over a wide range of issues including: Health Resources and Services Act, substance abuse and mental health, oral health, health care disparities, railroad retirement, private retirement plans and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation through the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), and the domestic activities of the Red Cross.
