Rep. Diana DeGette is a fourth-generation Coloradoan who has dedicated her
Now in her twelfth term, DeGette is recognized as a leading voice in the nation’s ongoing health care debate. As the chair of a key oversight panel, DeGette is responsible for overseeing some of our nation’s most important federal agencies – including the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
In her role as chair of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce’s Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, DeGette has quickly become a leading figure in holding the Trump administration accountable for its shameful policy of separating undocumented families at the border, ensuring the EPA is properly enforcing the nation’s environmental laws, and lowering the cost of insulin for the millions of Americans who rely on it every day.
In addition to chairing the Energy and Commerce Oversight panel, DeGette also serves as a member of the House Natural Resources Committee, where she’s working to enact policies that will further protect Colorado’s public lands and combat climate change.
