Rogers Statement on the Retirement Announcement by Rep. Tom Latham

Washington, December 17, 2013

House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers today made the following statement following the announcement that Rep. Tom Latham, Chairman of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Subcommittee, will not run for re-election:

“Tom is a tremendous asset to the Appropriations Committee, to his district, and to the country. His leadership on fiscal issues and his steady arm in crafting federal budgets has been invaluable over the years, and I am extremely thankful for his dedication and commitment to getting things done. He is a team-player, but he has always remained committed to his people and his values. While we will miss him in the next Congress, I look forward to working with him over this next year to meet the many fiscal challenges ahead.
