Congressman Brett Guthrie represents Kentucky's Second Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Second District is the home of the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln, Mammoth Cave National Park, and Fort Knox.

Guthrie serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The Energy and Commerce Committee is the oldest standing legislative committee in the House with broad jurisdiction over our nation's energy, health care, telecommunications, and consumer product safety policies. Guthrie is Chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee's Health Subcommittee. He also serves on the Subcommittee on Energy, Climate, and Grid Security and the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations.

Recognized for his proven leadership, Guthrie was also appointed to serve a third term as a Deputy Whip within the House Republican Conference for the 118th Congress.

Guthrie graduated in 1987 from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point 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.

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 until being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2008.

Married to the former Beth Clemmons, they have three children, Caroline, Robby and Elizabeth. Brett and Beth are also the proud grandparents of Rowan and Laine, daughters of Caroline and her husband Ryan.
