Granger Welcomes Letlow to the Committee
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Kay Granger (TX), the Lead Republican on the House Appropriations Committee, announced Rep. Julia Letlow (LA) will fill the vacant Republican seat on the committee for the remainder of the 117th Congress. Following the Republican Steering Committee’s meeting Tuesday, the Republican Conference ratified the Steering Committee’s recommendation for Letlow to fill the seat. Letlow will serve on the Agriculture, Rural Development, and Food and Drug Administration Subcommittee and the State and Foreign Operations Subcommittee.
“As a former teacher, I am proud to welcome another educator, Congresswoman Julia Letlow, to the committee,” said Granger. “In her first term, Julia has shown that she is smart, a hard worker, and a strong advocate for education and agriculture. Her work ethic and academic experience will be valuable to the committee. Julia joins a strong team that continues to fight for the American people and conservative principles, and I look forward to working with her as we finish the 117th Congress.”
“Serving on the Appropriations Committee is an incredible honor, and I’m very appreciative of the trust that our Republican leadership and the Steering Committee have placed in me. I look forward to working with Ranking Member Granger and my colleagues to be a responsible steward of taxpayer dollars and deliver results for the American people,” said Letlow.
