WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) released the following statement after the House Republican Steering Committee approved his re-appointment as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations for the 115th Congress.
“I am honored to continue serving as the Chairman of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Subcommittee. In the last two years, we were able to prioritize vital housing programs and transportation initiatives our community depends on. Whether it is supporting critical homeless assistance grants for South Florida to successfully advocating for Southwest Florida’s designation as a Promise Zone, I am proud of the work I have accomplished. This chairmanship also gives our community a direct line to the leadership of two important Cabinet departments.
“As we welcome a new Administration, I am excited to continue prioritizing transportation and infrastructure, helping address urgent needs in our community and across the country.
“I thank Chairman Frelinghuysen for this opportunity, and I look forward to continue working with him in the 115th Congress.”
