The chairman of the U. S. House Appropriations Committee today appointed Congressman Tom Cole to three powerful subcommittees.

Hal Rogers named Cole to the Defense Subcommittee, the Interior Subcommittee and the State and Foreign Operations Subcommittee.

Rogers also announced that Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-CA), and Rep. Bill Young (R-FL) will be given the title of “Chairman Emeritus” of the Appropriations Committee.

“Each and every one of our Republican committee members are committed to the historic challenge of dramatically reducing government spending and getting our economy on a sustainable and responsible path. It is with their expertise, hard work, and leadership that this Congress will begin to undo the damage caused by record deficits and debt, put Americans back to work, and provide for a secure financial future. We have a tough road ahead of us, and this Committee will begin our work immediately to accomplish our goals for the 112th Congress,” Rogers said.
