Three New Jersey Democrats are expected to assume key subcommittee chairmanships when the 116th Congress convenes in January.

Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-Paterson) is in line to be chairman of the House Ways & Means Trade Subcommittee.

Rep. Albio Sires (D-West New York) will likely become the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere.

Rep. Donald Payne, Jr. (D-Newark) is appears poised to chair the House Homeland Security Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Communications Subcommittee.

All three currently serve as ranking minority members of those panels.

It is anticipated that Rep. Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-Long Branch) will chair the powerful House Energy & Commerce Committee.

Two retiring House members also held chairmanships.

Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-Harding) was the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee for the last two years.  He announced his retirement last January and will be replaced by Democrat Mikie Sherrill.

Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R-Ventnor) was the chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Aviation.

Rep. Leonard Lance (R-Clinton) was next in line to chair the Energy & Commerce Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, had he been re-elected and had Republicans retained control of the House.  Lance lost his bid for re-election to Democrat Tom Malinowski.
