Reschenthaler Selected to Serve on Rules and Appropriations Committees

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Earlier this week, Congressman Guy Reschenthaler (PA-14) was selected to serve on the influential House Committee on Rules and House Committee on Appropriations during the 117th Congress.

"I'm honored to have been chosen by Leader McCarthy and my Republican colleagues to serve on the House Committees on Rules and Appropriations and look forward to bringing our southwestern Pennsylvania values to this important work," said Reschenthaler. "As a member of the Rules Committee, I will fight for the right of all Americans to be heard, promote open and free debate, and defend against House Democrats' recent abuses of power in this institution. On the House Appropriations Committee, I will work to provide our nation with the resources necessary to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and grow our economy, while also ensuring taxpayer dollars are spent responsibly."

"I am pleased to congratulate Congressman Guy Reschenthaler on his appointment to the House Rules Committee," said Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04), Ranking Member of the House Rules Committee. "Guy has a tremendous background of service to his country, and this transcends his tenure in the People's House. He is one of the most able and hardworking Members of the House with a brilliant future ahead of him. His perspective will be a vital contribution on the Rules panel in the 117th Congress."

"I am excited to welcome Congressman Reschenthaler to the Committee on Appropriations. The experience he brings will help us fight House Democrats' partisan agenda, advance conservative priorities, and deliver real results for the American people," said Republican Leader of the House Appropriations Committee Kay Granger.

The Committee on Rules, one of the oldest and most powerful standing committees in the House, sets the terms and conditions for debate on measures considered on the House floor. The influential House Appropriations Committee is responsible for funding federal activities and programs.
