Today, the House Republican Conference elected Congressman Hal Rogers to a third term as Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations. Chairman Rogers made the following statement:
“I am honored and humbled that the Republican Conference has entrusted me to lead the Appropriations Committee for another two years,” Chairman Rogers said. “So far as Chairman, I have been proud to oversee the Committee’s important work funding federal government programs in a transparent, responsible way – saving the American taxpayer more than $165 billion over the past four years.
“I intend to continue these accomplishments in the next Congress. Through a return to regular order, our Committee can continue to cut wasteful spending, rein in the Obama Administration’s executive overreach, bring back responsible governing, and put our nation on a solid fiscal path.”
