  • Rep. Candice Miller, R-Mich., will chair the U.S. House Administration Committee.

U.S. House Republicans have named Rep. Candice Miller of Michigan to chair a committee after coming under fire for appointing only white men to the top Congressional jobs. House Speaker John Boehner announced Friday that Miller will lead the House Administration Committee.

GOP House committee chairs were about to become an all-white, all-male club before Miller's appointment.

House Democrats are expected to have five women as ranking committee members. In the Democratic-controlled Senate, women chair a least six permanent or select committees.
