Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, announced chairmen for the  Committee’s six subcommittees for the 113th Congress.  Chairman Royce also announced that the Committee will consist of 46 Members, including 25 Republicans and 21 Democrats.
