To find contact information for your elected officials at the federal, state, and local level, go to You can also call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard to find your elected official’s phone number: 202-224-3121, for both the House and Senate.

Elected officials are more interested in hearing from constituents than people who live outside their district. However, sometimes it makes sense to contact House or Senate committee leaders, even if you do not live in their district. These individuals determine which bills get a hearing, a necessary step towards being voted out of committee and being considered by the full House or Senate.

The primary committees for workforce education, and their leading members, are listed below:

House Education and the Workforce Committee:

  • Committee Chair: Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.)
  • Ranking Member: Bobby Scott (D-VA)

Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP):

  • Chair: Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN)
  • Ranking Member: Senator Patty Murray (D-WA)

Other committees may sometimes be assigned workforce education-related legislation, especially if the legislation is limited to particular industry sectors. Click for a list of House and Senate committees.
