Congressman Matt Cartwright began serving the people of northeastern Pennsylvania and the eastern Lehigh Valley in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2013. The 17th congressional district includes all of Schuylkill County and portions of Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Carbon, and Northampton Counties. In early 2018, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court redrew and renumbered the state’s congressional districts, and Congressman Cartwright announced for the new 8th congressional district, which includes all of Lackawanna, Wayne, and Pike Counties and portions of Luzerne and Monroe Counties. During his time in Congress, Cartwright has stepped forward as a leader, serving as a Regional Whip and introducing dozens of pieces of legislation aimed at helping seniors, military families, veterans, students, workers, consumers, the middle class, and the environment – most of which were introduced with bi-partisan support. Cartwright was elected by his colleagues to serve on the powerful House Committee on Appropriations, which makes all annual, discretionary funding decisions in the federal budget. There, Matt serves on the Appropriations Subcommittee for Commerce, Justice, and Science and the Subcommittee for Financial Services and General Government. Cartwright also retains a seat on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the main congressional panel overseeing the full operations of the executive branch of our national government.
