United States House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The House Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere is a subcommittee within the House Foreign Affairs Committee. It was known in previous Congresses as the Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, Civilian Security and Trade, and most recently, the Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Civilian Security, Migration and International Economic Policy.


The subcommittee is one of five with what the committees calls "regional jurisdiction" over a specific area of the globe. Such jurisdiction includes political relations between the United States and countries in the region and related legislation, disaster assistance, boundary issues, and international claims. The regional subcommittees also oversee the activities of the United Nations and its programs in the region.[1]
