House Appropriations Committee Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen has announced the following Subcommittee staff changes at the Committee.
“I am pleased to announce that three extremely professional women have agreed to fill senior roles on the Committee staff. Our Committee does a huge amount of crucial work on behalf of the American people – ensuring that all tax dollars are used as wisely and as efficiently as possible. It takes technical skill, political savvy, and a heroic work-ethic to get the job done. Donna, Angie, and Sue have these qualities in spades, and are more than up to the task. Their vast combined experience will benefit the Committee, the Congress, and the nation both now and in the future,” Chairman Frelinghuysen said.
