Rep. Aguilar Statement on His Continued Service on the House Committee on Appropriations

WASHINGTON, DC — Rep. Pete Aguilar issued the following statement after being appointed to serve on the House Committee on Appropriations.

“I’m honored to be appointed to serve on House Committee on Appropriations. I came to Congress to ensure communities like mine have the resources they need to thrive. I will continue to be a strong advocate for families, schools, infrastructure and economic opportunity for all, not just a select few.”

“As Speaker McCarthy and House Republicans threaten to enact deep cuts to Social Security and Medicare, this committee has never been more vital than it is today. I am committed to working with Democrats and Republicans to invest in communities across the country, create good-paying jobs, strengthen our national defense, support security assistance for Israel and ensure our law enforcement agencies have the resources they need to protect the American people.”

“I’d like to thank Leader Jeffries and Ranking Member DeLauro for their support and I look forward to getting to work.”

Rep. Aguilar serves as Chair of the House Democratic Caucus and as a member of the House Committee on Appropriations.
