Rep. Stewart Appointed to Defense, Interior, and Foreign Operations Subcommittees on the House Appropriations Committee

WASHINGTON— Today, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) was appointed by Chairwoman Kay Granger (R-TX) to serve on three subcommittees within the House Committee on Appropriations. These subcommittees include Defense; Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies; and State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs.

“My position on each of these committees will immediately and significantly benefit Utah,” said Rep. Stewart. “I want to thank my friend, Chairwoman Granger, for her exceptional leadership on this critical committee. The American people deserve a Congress that respects their tax dollars, and we will work tirelessly to do just that. I am committed to ensuring America’s national security by protecting and strengthening assets like Hill Air Force Base. And I am committed to maintaining and preserving Utah’s land and resources, as well as those local industries that rely on them. It is my honor to be in the position to better help my home state, and I am eager to continue fighting for Utah.”

“I’m proud to have Congressman Stewart sitting on these critical subcommittees at such an important time for the country,” Chairwoman Granger said. “He understands that we must find ways to cut wasteful government spending while increasing the safety and security of the American people. We’ve got our work cut out for us, but Rep. Stewart is the right member to help get the job done. I look forward to our continued work together on behalf of the American people, and I look forward to our continued work to pass conservative appropriations bills.”
