Congressman Daniel Burton joined Net Literacy’s Honorary Board, in support of the student-founded entrepreneurial approach and service learning that promotes student success.
Congressman Dan Burton is currently serving his fifthteenth term as a United States Representative from Indiana’s Fifth Congressional District. His first term in Congress began in January of 1983. The Fifth District lies in the heart of central Indiana and includes all of Tipton, Grant, Miami, Wabash, Huntington, Hamilton, and Hancock Counties, as well as parts of Marion, Shelby, Howard and Johnson Counties.
When Congressman Burton assumed the Chairmanship of the House Committee on Oversight & Government Reform in the 105th Congress, he became the first Hoosier Republican to Chair a full House Committee in more than sixty years. The last was Congressman William Robert Wood, who chaired the Committee on Appropriations during the 71st Congress (1929-1931). Congressman Burton currently serves as Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Europe and Eurasia. Also, he is a Senior Member on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Net Literacy’s student volunteers are grateful for Congressman Burton’s support and advocacy.
