U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Brighton, was reappointed to serve as the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence for the coming term, according to the Livingston Daily Press & Argus.
Rogers was first elected to represent the 8th Congressional District in Congress in 2001. He was appointed chairman of the Intelligence Committee in 2010.
Rogers has been a loud advocate on protecting American industries from foreign cyber attacks, something he addressed at a breakfast event hosted by the Greater Brighton Area Chamber of Commerce in October.
Rogers also authored the leading cyber security bill to protect American innovation and the jobs that come with it from cyber predators.
