Rep. Shelley Moore Capito proudly serves the people of West Virginia's Second Congressional District in the 112th Congress, where she represents a diverse constituency stretching from the Ohio River Valley through the state's eastern panhandle. Capito is a former member of the West Virginia House of Delegates and a committed public servant who prides herself on being approachable and accessible to her constituents. She is currently the \only woman in West Virginia's congressional delegation. Capito serves on the House Financial Services Committee as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit. She also sits on the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure - the panel which will direct important highway legislation during the 112th Congress.

With her record of bipartisan cooperation, she strongly believes that the challenges of our day demand bipartisan solutions. With that spirit in mind, she has been an advocate for a range of policies that directly impact her constituents, including energy independence, quality healthcare and the safety and security of our service men and women.

In her push for energy independence she has argued that West Virginia's coal reserves must play a part in an all-of-the-above solution to our nation's energy needs. She's introduced legislation to jump-start investment in clean coal technology and joined with a bipartisan coalition of Republicans and Democrats to introduce a comprehensive energy plan to expand domestic energy exploration and invest billions in alternative energy resources, clean coal technology, and environmental restoration.

Capito has also been a strong voice for healthcare accessibility and affordability, particularly in rural areas. Throughout her career she has been a strong supporter of the State Children's Health Insurance Program and played an integral role in creating the Medicare prescription drug program which benefits thousands of West Virginians. She has previously served as the Vice Co-Chairwoman of the House Prescription Drug Taskforce and of the Long-Term Care Caucus where she continues her work to support healthcare issues important to West Virginia seniors.

With such a large population of veterans in West Virginia, Capito is committed to improving the support structure for our service men and women. She strongly supported the new GI Bill that will provide enhanced educational benefits to our nation's younger veterans, and she has been a consistent voice in the push for improved healthcare accessibility for veterans in rural states.

When not in Washington, Rep. Capito regularly travels her 18-county district to meet with her constituents and local leaders.

Capito lives in Charleston with her husband Charles L. Capito. They have three children: sons Charles (and his wife Laura) and Moore, and one daughter, Shelley. The family recently grew with the birth of Capito's first grandchild, Celia Vivienne Capito, who was born to Charles and Laura on April 15, 2010.

Capito graduated from Duke University with a B.S. in Zoology and she holds a M.Ed. from the University of Virginia.
