Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Robert Aderholt today announced that he has been reappointed to the House Appropriations Committee for the 110th Congress. He will serve on three Appropriations Subcommittees: Homeland Security; Transportation; and, Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies. The House Appropriations Committee is responsible for funding all non-entitlement federal programs and departments.

“I’m pleased that I’m going to be able to continue my work on the Appropriations Committee,” Congressman Aderholt said. “It’s important that Congress enforce fiscal discipline on government spending and yet at the same time work for Alabama and the 4th Congressional District. Certainly a seat on the Appropriations Committee affords me an excellent opportunity to do just that.”

Congressman Aderholt has served on the Appropriations Committee since he was first elected to office. During that time he has consistently supported programs vital to North Alabama’s continued growth and well-being such as transportation funding and other infrastructure investments.

“Although Congress has undergone some changes, my commitment to the people of Alabama and the 4th District has not,” continued Congressman Aderholt. “My top priority remains leveraging the resources of the federal government to create good, high paying jobs while encouraging the growth of local communities. I’m also pleased to be given a seat on the Homeland Security subcommittee panel. The issue of Homeland Security is one of the most important issues facing our nation at this time.”

Congressman Aderholt concluded, “The people of the 4th Congressional district work hard to provide for their families. Every action I take in Congress, from fighting for our traditional Alabama values to protecting such vital programs as Social Security, is meant to support that fact. I look forward to continuing my work during the appropriations process and supporting efforts within the 4th District and the State of Alabama for the next two years.”
