“As House Republicans begin the important work of the Appropriations Committee, I’m thrilled to serve on three critical subcommittees where I’ll have the opportunity to work with Chairwoman Kay Granger and my colleagues on the committee to ensure our tax dollars are spent wisely and we pass conservative bills that address the needs of the American people,” Carl said.

“Congratulations to my friend Jerry Carl on his Appropriations subcommittee assignments,” said House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Kay Granger. “I am confident his insight on these subcommittees will be invaluable, and I look forward to working alongside him to pass conservative appropriations bills.”
