WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Charlie Dent (PA-15) today was selected to serve on three subcommittees of the House Committee on Appropriations, including the Subcommittee on Homeland Security, the Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing & Urban Development (THUD), and the Subcommittee on State & Foreign Operations. The assignments reflect Dent’s expertise in homeland security and transportation policy, which he developed over three terms as a member of the Committee on Homeland Security and the Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure.

“My assignment to the Subcommittee on Homeland Security will allow me to continue working to ensure the safety of the American public, a responsibility I take extremely seriously,” said Dent, who had previously served as the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Transportation Security & Infrastructure Protection in the 111th Congress. “I am also eager to use my experience as a member of the Pennsylvania legislature and the House Transportation Committee to advance policies through the THUD Subcommittee that will enhance the safety and efficiency of our nation’s complex transportation system.”
