U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann released a statement yesterday after being named the Chairman of the House Appropriations Energy and Water Development Subcommittee. The statement read in part…

“I am excited to be named the Chairman of the House Appropriations Energy and Water Development Subcommittee in the 118th Congress. The work of the Energy and Water Subcommittee is incredibly important to our nation’s long-term energy security and national security. In this new role, I will continue fighting as Tennessee’s only appropriator in the House of Representatives for fiscal responsibility and our state’s priorities in Congress.”

House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Kay Granger (TX-12) said, “I am proud to have selected Rep. Fleischmann to work alongside me. Congressman Fleischmann has worked diligently over the last four years to strengthen our homeland security, and I know he will work to cut wasteful government spending and restore fiscal responsibility while meeting our military and energy security needs.”
