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

Congressman Guthrie serves on both the House Energy and Commerce (E&C) Committee and the House Committee on Education and the Workforce for the 115th Congress. The Energy and Commerce is the oldest standing legislative committee in the House with broad jurisdiction over our nation's energy, healthcare, telecommunications and consumer product safety policies.

Guthrie also serves on the following subcommittees for Energy and Commerce- Subcommittee on Health, where he serves as Vice Chair; Subcommittee on Communications and Technology; and Subcommittee on Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection. He serves as the Chairman of the Education and Workforce Committee's Higher Education and Workforce Development Subcommittee.

Recognized for his proven leadership, he was also appointed to serve as an Assistant Whip within the Republican Conference and as a regional representative to the Republican Policy Committee.

During his tenure in Congress, Guthrie previously served on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee as well as the Committee on Education and the Workforce, where he was named the top Republican on the Higher Education, Lifelong Learning, and Competitiveness Subcommittee.

Guthrie graduated in 1987 from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point with a degree in economics 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.

Congressman Guthrie comes from a small business, manufacturing background. 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. In Frankfort, he served on the Education Committee, the Economic Development, Tourism and Labor Committee, and chaired the Transportation Committee.

Married to the former Beth Clemmons, they have three children, Caroline, Robby and Elizabeth.
