From the office of Congressman Andy Harris:
Congressman Andy Harris was appointed by his Republican colleagues to the powerful House Appropriations Committee. Congressman Harris will be filling a vacancy created by the retirement by Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson. He is only member from Maryland and only physician serving on the committee.
“I appreciate the support of my colleagues to serve on this important committee,” said Congressman Harris. “I look forward to joining Chairman Rogers to control spending and put our nation back on a path toward fiscal responsibility. It’s time we deal with America’s fiscal challenges instead of continuing to pass them on to our kids and grandkids.”
Congressman Harris will be serving on the following subcommittees:
- Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies
- Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies
- Legislative Branch
