Published: Saturday, Dec. 18, 2010 5:30 a.m. CDT

Republican Randy Hultgren has been selected to serve on the Agriculture Committee and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee when he arrives in Congress next year as the representative for the 14th Congressional District.

Hultgren had expressed interest in the energy and commerce committees, as well as the financial services committee. In the Transportation Committee, he would have hands-on work with railroads – including following the Canadian National purchase of the EJ&E railroad – aviation, roads and public works projects.

Hultgren beat Democratic incumbent Bill Foster in the November election for the 14th Congressional seat. The 14th Congressional District contains much of DeKalb County.
