U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) is the Committee Chair and U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) is the Ranking Member.
For all press related inquiries, please contact our main office at 202-224-2035 and they will direct your call to either Chairwoman Stabenow’s office or Ranking Member Boozman’s office.
The main office can direct your calls to members of both staffs. Call us at 202-224-2035.
We can transfer your call and forward a message to staffers, but unfortunately cannot give out email addresses or direct line numbers. You would have to receive that information from the staffer.

We are more than happy to help you in any way we can and will put you in touch with the staff member who can answer your questions.
