House Sub-Committee Appointments for Trone Announced

January 26th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

On Monday, Congressman David Trone announced the three subcommittees that he will serve on in the powerful House Appropriations Committee following his appointment earlier this year:


  • Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies
  • Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies 
  • Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies 


The Appropriations Committee is the most powerful committee in Congress. With one of the broadest jurisdictions, the committee is responsible for appropriating funding for the federal government. Trone joins the committee at the start of his second term representing Maryland’s 6th District, which includes all or part of Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, Allegany, and Garrett Counties.


“These subcommittees will give me a chance to work on issues I know are important to everyday Marylanders, from passing an infrastructure bill that includes universal broadband to making mental health and substance use disorder a priority for veteran health care,” said Congressman Trone. “We need to take real steps to reform our unjust criminal justice system and protect jobs at critical departments like NASA, NIST, and Fort Detrick. Under the leadership of Chairwoman Rosa DeLauro, I know we will create legislation that puts the working families and children of this country first and creates long-term policies that reflect our values.”
