The House Judiciary Committee, led by new Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), today announced Republican subcommittee assignments for the new Congress.
The committee’s former chairman, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), will chair the subcommittee on crime, terrorism, homeland security and investigations.
Rep. Howard Coble (R-N.C.) will lead the courts, intellectual property and the Internet subcommittee, covering copyright and patent issues. That panel has a battle over modifying royalty rules for Internet radio stations on its plate this year.
