JANUARY 5, 2007 - Posted at 11:11 a.m. CST

 

WASHINGTON - First District Congressman Marion Berry has been appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Majority Whip James Clyburn to the Senior Whip team for the 110th Congress.  This appointment comes just weeks after Democratic leaders asked Berry to serve as the Vice-Chair of the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee.

As a Senior Whip, Berry will meet with other senior members and opinion leaders to discuss long-range policy goals and issues facing Congress. 

Berry was first elected to Congress in 1996.  He was sworn in yesterday to serve his sixth term, and has been re-appointed to the powerful House Appropriations Committee, where he will serve on the Transportation, Energy & Water, and Homeland Security Subcommittees.
