Just before they began a six-hour tribute to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), the House approved H.Res. 33, which assigns Republicans to House committees on Agriculture, Armed Services, Energy and Commerce, Financial Services, Rules, and Transportation and Infrastructure. The resolution was approved by unanimous consent, and no roll call vote was taken.
The text of the resolution obtained by The Hill shows that Republicans named 25 members to the Agriculture Committee, 34 to Armed Services, 30 to Energy and Commerce, 33 to Financial Services, one to Rules (Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah), and 32 to Transportation and Infrastructure.
