WASHINGTON, D.C.–– Today, Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) was appointed to serve on the Defense, and State and Foreign Operations Subcommittees on Appropriations, in addition to serving as Ranking Member of the Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development Subcommittee.

“I am beyond grateful to my colleagues for selecting me to serve on three Subcommittees on Appropriations. I am especially thankful to Ranking Member Kay Granger for her invaluable leadership and support.

"Now, more than ever, we must ensure that the United States is equipped with the best-trained, most capable military that will continue promoting and protecting our national security interests both at home and abroad. We must also redouble our efforts to demand human rights around the world, continue to fight against the vicious cancer that is the dictatorships in Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua, and support our key friend and ally, Israel. Once again, I am thrilled by this opportunity, and I look forward to returning to these important subcommittees."

Earlier this year, Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart was re-elected as the leading Republican on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriation Subcommittee.
