Washington, D.C.- Rep. Marshall, M.D. released the following statement on his assignment to a leadership role on the Science, Space and Technology Committee.
“I’m honored to be the new Vice Chair of the Science, Space & Technology Subcommittee on Research and Technology," Marshall said.

These programs are especially critical in rural areas like the Big First.”

“As a former physician, Rep. Marshall has the experience to serve the Research and Technology Subcommittee well as vice chairman. Since joining the Science Committee, Rep. Marshall has served with vigor, and I look forward to working with him in this new capacity,” Chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX) said about the nomination.
Rep. Marshall looks forward to working with Chairman Smith and Chairwoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA) in this new role and excited to assume a leadership position.
