WASHINGTON, D.C. — The House Republican Conference has elected U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers to a second term as Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations.
“I am honored and grateful to have been selected by the Republican Conference to serve a second term as Chairman of the Appropriations Committee,” Rogers said in response to the vote. “Over the past two years, I’ve been proud to oversee the Committee’s responsible shepherding of federal tax dollars under an open and transparent process – saving the American tax payer almost $100 billion.”
Under House rules, committee chairmen are limited to three terms. If he remains in office, Rogers would be eligible for one more term as Appropriations chair.
“I look forward to continuing this important work on behalf of the American people, making the necessary strides to get the nation’s finances on track, reducing unnecessary government spending, and investing in important programs that will benefit the nation both now and in the future,” Rogers said.
