Congressman Maloney announces assignments

Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) recently announced his subcommittee assignments on both the House Agriculture Committee and House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

"I requested theses subcommittee assignments to allow me to get to work on creating jobs and expanding our economy in the Hudson Valley," said Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney. "Whether it’s advocating for essential infrastructure like the Tappan Zee Bridge or ensuring that Congress passes a Farm Bill that protects family farms, I look forward to working with our local leaders and communities to fight for folks all over our district."

On the Agriculture Committee, Congressman Maloney will serve on the Subcommittee on General Farm Commodities and Risk Management and Subcommittee on Horticulture, Research, Biotechnology and Foreign Agriculture. These subcommittees have jurisdiction over a number of different crops including fruits and vegetables, crop insurance, commodity exchanges, and biotechnology.

On the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Congressman Maloney will serve on the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit, Subcommittee on Aviation and Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment. These subcommittees have jurisdiction over highway and transit facilities, aviation facilities, and water infrastructure, as well as the Army Corps of Engineers.

Critical to many areas throughout the Hudson Valley that are prone to flooding will be his involvement with the Army Corps on flood and storm protection.

  • Honorable James R. Doxsey
  • February 14th, 2013 Thank You Congressman Maloney for the many committments you are about to endure.
    We have been plagued with flooding for over 30 years here in Dutchess County. The Army Corps has produced studies after studies. Actions are needed,
    Besides the insurance costs now mandated for our flood areas, people are also being killed in flood prone roads. Recently in my area, as a Fire Police member and first responder, actions are required now.
    I am confident you are on top of important legislation to actually produce results.

    Respectfully Submitted,
    Honorable Mr. James R. Doxsey
    Dutchess County Legislator
    District 1
