Chairman Rogers Statement on the Retirement of Appropriations Committee Ranking Member Norm Dicks
House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers released the following statement on the announcement today by Appropriations Ranking Member Norm Dicks on his retirement from Congress.
“Norm Dicks and I have been friends and colleagues for many years, and I have rarely had the chance to work with someone of his decency, strong work ethic, jovial character, and honesty. He has served this institution with dignity and a true dedication to the people of the 6th District of Washington. Despite our ideological differences, Norm has never hesitated to work together to maintain the comity and spirit of bipartisanship that is the hallmark of the Appropriations Committee. I look forward to working side by side with Norm over the next few months, and will truly miss his presence in the next Congress. I wish him all the best in this next stage of life.”
