House majority leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) had assigned Santos to the House Science, Space and Technology Committee and the Small Business Committee. Santos released a statement through his communications director explaining his decision to step down from the committees, saying that “the business of the 118th Congress must continue without media fanfare.”
