The congressman is a member of both the Judiciary and Budget Committees.  On Judiciary he serves on the Subcommittee on the Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet as well as the Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, Commercial, and Antitrust Law.

One of the congressman’s top priorities is the protection of intellectual property rights.  In 2013, Congressman Jeffries along with Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX-27) introduced the Patent Litigation and Innovation Act of 2013 (H.R. 2639) to curb patent trolling.
