WASHINGTON, DC -

Congressman G. K. Butterfield has been appointed to a key U. S. House subcommittee.

The North Carolina Democrat will serve on the House Energy and Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Communications and Technology.

The subcommittee oversees all electronic communications, including mobile, satellite, and emergency systems.

Butterfield's appointment fills the vacancy created when Massachusetts Congressman Edward Markey was elected to the U. S. Senate.
