Bergman to Serve on Budget and Natural Resources Committees
WASHINGTON – The office of Representative Jack Bergman (MI-1) announced today that, along with the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, Rep. Bergman has been selected to serve on the House Committee on the Budget and the House Committee on Natural Resources.
Bergman had this to say about being selected to serve on the House Committee on the Budget:
“I campaigned on a promise of responsible and accountable service,” Bergman said, “service to the First District, service to Michigan, and service to the American people. I’m delighted that these committee selections provide an avenue for me to fulfill that promise in a way that makes sense for the First District.
“On the House Committee on the Budget, I’ll have the opportunity to tackle issues that matter not just here in Michigan but in communities all across the United States. I always had the assurance in the Marine Corps that hard work and unwavering commitment would lead to successful completion of the mission. That’s what the American Dream is all about. People deserve the comfort of knowing that their work will pay off, that our economy will provide opportunities for growth, and that they’ll keep more of their hard-earned dollars. This committee is dedicated to making sure that the American Dream is still attainable to everyone willing to work for it.”
In regard to being selected to serve on the House Committee on Natural Resources, Bergman said this:
“In the First District, maintaining a vibrant economy is inextricably tied to protecting our wildlife, our waterways, and our public lands. Families, industries, and entire communities depend on our natural resources for survival, and we have a responsibility to protect them for future generations. As a member of the House Committee on Natural Resources, I’ll have the opportunity to influence decisions about mineral lands and mining, fisheries and wildlife, public lands and waterways, irrigation and reclamation, and energy production, and I look forward to working with my colleagues on the committee to make sure those decisions support the First District’s economy and other priorities.”
