Rep Justin Amash to Lose Seat on House Budget Committee

WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Justin Amash has made a point of charting his own course in Congress. It may have cost the west Michigan Republican a spot on the House Budget Committee, however.

The Washington-based publication Roll Call cited multiple sources Monday night saying that Amash, of Cascade Township, was one of a handful of members moved off prominent committees by the Republican Steering Committee, which makes committee assignments. The Free Press confirmed it as well.

House Speaker John Boehner largely controls the committee and the move was seen by Roll Call as a “tough message” to conservative members who had previously balked at leadership stances “ahead of the looming vote on the fiscal cliff deal.”
