WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25), Chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development (THUD), was today named a conferee to the next set of government funding bills by Speaker Paul Ryan.
“I am honored to have been named to the Conference Committee on the next set of Appropriations bills. Over the last several months, I have worked diligently with THUD Appropriations Committee Ranking Member Price, my subcommittee, and my Appropriations colleagues to provide the necessary federal dollars to support our nation’s transportation, infrastructure, and housing. These bills fund vital agencies and programs, including continued Everglades restoration projects, citrus disease response and research, and support for community development.
