June 18, 2019: Rep. Dan Lipinski

Congressman Dan Lipinski is a proud native of Illinois’ Third Congressional District, which includes parts of the southwest side of Chicago, southwest Cook County, and northeastern Will County.  Now in his eighth term, Rep. Lipinski has distinguished himself as a champion of the middle class and is a leader on transportation issues, the promotion of American manufacturing, job creation through research and technological innovation, strengthening Buy American laws, restoring fiscal responsibility, and veteran outreach.

In the House, Congressman Lipinski serves on two committees: Transportation & Infrastructure and Science, Space, & Technology. He is the chairman of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee’s Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines and Hazardous Materials, which provides oversight of all federal laws and programs regulating railroad transportation, as well as all federal laws and programs regulating the safety of gas and liquid pipelines and the safety of transporting material and hazardous freight. Congressman Lipinski has earned a reputation as a legislator who brings people together to solve problems.  As Congress has struggled with historic gridlock, Lipinski has sponsored several bills with broad bipartisan support that have been signed into law, including legislation that boosts manufacturing jobs by requiring a national strategic plan for manufacturing every four years, a bill that protects Americans from cybercrimes and increases national security, and legislation that aids sexual assault victims in the military and helps deter future assaults.

Prior to serving in Congress, Lipinski taught American Government at the college level, including at the University of Notre Dame. He earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University, an M.S. in Engineering-Economic Systems from Stanford University, and a Ph.D. in Political Science from Duke University. He and his wife, Judy, reside in Western Springs and are avid runners.
