Rep. Louise Slaughter was re-elected as a ranking member of the House Committee on Rules.
Slaughter, D-Perinton, served as chairwoman of the committee from 2007 to 2011 when Democrats were in the majority. She was re-elected Thursday by the Democratic Caucus.
“The values and experience Louise Slaughter brings to the position of ranking member will strengthen our hand in the hard legislative battles ahead,” Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said.
