Congresswoman-Elect Sara Jacobs discusses new congressional committee assignments

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the nomination of Congresswoman-Elect Sara Jacobs (CA-53) to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.

This announcement follows Jacobs’ previous appointment by Speaker Pelosi to the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, which acts on behalf of the caucus to determine membership and leadership of legislative committees and develop the House Majority’s policy priorities.

Jacobs is the sole Democratic freshman to receive a nomination to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.

Upon receiving the nomination, Congresswoman-Elect Sara Jacobs said, “I am honored to serve California’s 53rd Congressional District on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. I look forward to bringing my experience in U.S. foreign policy and international organizations — and my voice as a millennial who has never known a day in my adult life that the United States has not been at war — to the committee as we work to rebuild America’s standing in the world.”

Jacobs joined Good Morning San Diego to discuss her nomination to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and years of service in foreign policy.
