InfoRalph Regula has led a distinguished career in public service that spans more than four decades. One of the most senior members of the US House of Representatives, he is serving as the Vice Chairman of the Appropriations Committee and the Chairman of its Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services and Education. He is the dean of Ohio�s Congressional Delegation and is active in the Congressional Older Americans Caucus and the Congressional Steel Caucus.

On November 5, 2002, the people of Ohio�s 16th Congressional District elected him to his sixteenth term. With the beginning of the 108th Congress, the House leadership again asked him to chair the Labor, Health and Human Services and Education Subcommittee as well as serving as the Vice Chairman of the full committee. He will also remain active with older American and steel issues. As Subcommittee Chairman, Regula oversees the largest non-defense spending bill, providing federal funding for education, health and labor programs.
