Washington, Mar 26 -

House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers this morning announced that Jim Kulikowski will serve as Deputy Staff Director of the Committee, effective April 1.

“Jim has served us knowledgably and adeptly as Chief Counsel and Parliamentarian, and his experience with the process will serve the Committee well in his new position as Deputy Staff Director,” Rogers said. “I know from working with him closely for years that he has a shrewd understanding of what it takes to complete these essential bills, and I look forward to working with him in his new role.”

Prior to being appointed to this position, Kulikowski was Chief Counsel and Parliamentarian for the Committee. He has worked for the Committee in various capacities for more than 19 years, including tenures as Minority Staff Director, and Clerk of the Commerce, Justice, and Science Subcommittee when Rogers was its chairman.
