Congressman Brett Guthrie represents Kentucky’s Second Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Second District is home to Fort Knox, Abraham Lincoln’s birthplace, Mammoth Cave National Park, and many of the Commonwealth’s most treasured locations.

Congressman Guthrie serves on both the House Energy and Commerce (E&C) Committee and the House Committee on Education and the Workforce for the 113th Congress. E&C is the oldest standing legislative committee in the House with broad jurisdiction over our nation’s energy, healthcare, telecommunications and consumer product safety policies.

Guthrie also serves on the following subcommittees for E&C: Subcommittee on Health, where he serves as Vice Chair; Subcommittee on Communications and Technology; and Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade.

Recognized for his proven leadership, he was also appointed to serve as an Assistant Whip within the Republican Conference.

During his tenure in Congress, Guthrie previously served on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and the Education and Labor Committee, where he was named the top Republican on the Higher Education, Lifelong Learning, and Competitiveness Subcommittee.

Guthrie graduated in 1987 from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, with a degree in economics and went on to serve as a Field Artillery Officer in the 101st Airborne Division – Air Assault at Fort Campbell.  Guthrie later earned a Master’s Degree from Yale University in Public and Private Management.

Congressman Guthrie comes from a small business, manufacturing background. Following his military service, he joined Trace Die Cast, the Bowling Green, Ky., based manufacturing business that was started by his father.

First elected to public office in 1998, Guthrie represented the 32nd District in the Kentucky Senate.  In Frankfort, he served on the Education Committee, the Economic Development, Tourism and Labor Committee, and chaired the Transportation Committee.
