Lamb was additionally tapped to serve on the Veterans' Affairs subcommittees on health and technology modernization.
Democrats also chose Lamb as chairman of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee's subcommittee on energy, which looks at issues involving the U.S. Department of Energy; research, development and demonstration projects; commercial applications and energy standards.
