Weber Statement on 116th Congress Committee Assignments
Washington D.C. – Congressman Randy Weber (R – Friendswood) received his committee assignments for the 116th Congress. He will serve on the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee as Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Energy, and he will serve on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, with subcommittee assignments to Water Resources and Environment; Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation; and Railroads, Pipelines, and Hazardous Materials.
On Science, Space, and Technology, Congressman Weber looks forward to advancing nuclear research priorities and reforms that prioritize the use of limited research dollars. Last year, Congressman Weber and Senator Mike Crapo (R – ID) saw their bill, the Nuclear Energy Innovation Capabilities Act, signed into law.
Infrastructure remains a priority. Last Congress, the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee spearheaded legislation to authorize funding of our air travel, disaster recovery, and water resources. Additional infrastructure legislation is expected this congress.
“These two committees mean a great deal to my district, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to once again serve on Science, Space, and Technology and Transportation and Infrastructure.”
