  • About

    Congressman Joe Barton was first elected to serve the Sixth District of Texas in 1984. In 2004, he was selected by his colleagues to be the Chairman of the House Committee on Energy & Commerce - the oldest standing legislative House committee. The Energy & Commerce Committee has arguably the broadest non tax-oriented jurisdiction of any congressional committee, with principal House responsibility over matters relating to commerce, public health and marketplace interests. Barton is currently the senior Republican and serves as Chairman Emeritus of the full Energy and Commerce Committee.

    Barton's diligent work to promote a conservative agenda and protection of individual rights recently earned him notice from National Journal as one of the ''Republicans to Watch''.
