From the speaker's bio
John D. Dingell proudly represents Michigan's Fifteenth Congressional District, which includes parts of Wayne and Washtenaw County and all of Monroe County.

On January 5, 2011, Congressman Dingell was officially sworn in for his 29th full term in the U.S. House of Representatives. As the longest serving member of the United States House of Representatives in history, Dingell serves as the Dean of the House. Dingell's work includes fighting for the working families that keep America's economy going, making health care more affordable and accessible to all families, ensuring the safety of our nation's food supply, and protecting our nation's natural heritage.

Congressman Dingell serves exclusively as a senior member on the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee, which has jurisdiction over issues pertaining to commerce, energy, environment, health care, consumer product safety and telecommunications. Dingell sits on all of the Committee's six subcommittees and votes on the Subcommittee on Health, the Subcommittee on Energy & Power, the Subcommittee on Oversight & Investigations, and the Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade & Manufacturing.
