Rep. Steve Israel To Replace Giffords On Holocaust Council

Rep. Steve Israel (D-L.I.) has been appointed to serve on the United States Holocaust Memorial Council in Washington, D.C. He replaces Rep. Gabriel Giffords (D-Ariz.), who resigned Jan. 25 to concentrate on recovering from wounds sustained in an assassination attempt a year ago.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made the appointment, and also renewed the appointment of Rep. Henry Waxman of California as the other Democratic House member on the council.
