Graham Appointed to Senate Appropriations Committee

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) has been appointed to serve on the Senate Appropriations Committee in the 112th Congress.  The committee is responsible for writing legislation that allocates federal funds to the numerous government agencies, departments, and organizations on an annual basis. 

“I look forward to taking on this new committee assignment,” said Graham.  “We must get our nation’s fiscal house in order and the appropriations committee will be where many of the important spending decisions will be made.  I believe we can be better stewards of the taxpayer dollar and meet the legitimate funding needs of our state, such as those at the Port of Charleston.” 

Graham has repeatedly been cited as a ‘Taxpayer Hero’ by the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW), the nation's largest nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government.  Last year, CCAGW President Tom Schatz said of Graham, “While far too many members of Congress demonstrated little regard for the consequences of failing to reduce the record $1.4 trillion deficit and $13 trillion debt, Senator Graham's votes give taxpayers hope for the future.” 

In addition to service on the Appropriations Committee, Graham will continue to serve on the Aging, Armed Services, Budget, and Judiciary Committees.
