U.S. Rep. Joyce announces appointment to three House Appropriations subcommittees

U.S. Rep. David P. Joyce announced Thursday that he’s been selected to serve on three subcommittees within the House Appropriations Committee.

The congressman is currently the only Ohio Republican serving on the House Appropriations Committee.

Joyce, R-Russell Township, will sit on the Interior, the Labor, Health and Human Services, and the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development subcommittees.

“With these subcommittee assignments, I’ll be at the forefront of ensuring our district’s world-class health care facilities and natural resources such as the Great Lakes are receiving the resources they need to thrive," Joyce said in a statement. 

"It’s an honor to serve on the Appropriations Committee and I look forward to helping facilitate an efficient and effective appropriations process while also scrutinizing federal spending. I thank Chairman Rogers for the opportunity and look forward to working with my new colleagues.” 

Joyce began his first term in Congress on Jan. 3.
