“I am honored by the Republican Conference’s decision to elect me as their Chairman of the Appropriations Committee.  It is truly humbling to receive the confidence of my colleagues and I am ready to get to work so that together we can move our country forward.  We are facing unprecedented times and the American people are giving us a unique opportunity to start reining in government and getting our economy back on track.  My Republican colleagues and I are listening and we will fight to rein in spending, implement rigorous oversight and work together to change the culture on Capitol Hill.  There is no room for failure, our nation’s security depends on us getting this right and finding a new way forward.”
