Scott Appointed to House Budget Committee
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Bobby Scott (VA-03) issued the following statement after being appointed to the House Budget Committee for the 116th Congress:
“I am very excited to return to the House Budget Committee,” said Congressman Scott. “We must restore fiscal sanity to the federal budget process in order to balance the federal budget. Under Republicans’ unified control of the federal government, we have exploded the deficit to give tax breaks to corporations and the top 1% without paying for them. I know that under Chairman John Yarmuth’s leadership, we will create a budget that will be For the People and prioritize workers and the middle class instead of the wealthy and well-connected.”
Congressman Scott has previously served on the House Budget Committee in the 108th (2003-2004) 110th (2007-2008) and 111th (2009-2010) Congresses. He also serves as Co-Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus’ Budget Task Force. In addition to his appointment to the House Budget Committee, Congressman Scott serves as the Chairman of the Committee on Education and Labor.
