Wexton Appointed to House Budget Committee for 118th Congress

Washington, DC – Today, Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) announced the appointment of Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton (D-VA) to the House Budget Committee for the 118th Congress. Wexton also served on the Committee during the 117th Congress. The Committee’s chief responsibility is to draft an annual concurrent resolution on the budget that provides a Congressional framework for spending and revenue levels, the federal surplus or deficit, and public debt.

“I am honored to once again receive an appointment to the House Budget Committee and be a voice for Virginia’s kids and families on this important committee,” said Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton. “Our efforts this year will be crucial as we work in a bipartisan way to support a budget that delivers the support families need right now and continues the strong and stable economic recovery we’ve achieved the past two years. I look forward to building on the great progress we’ve delivered for the American people.”

Last Congress, the Budget Committee was responsible for advancing the American Rescue Plan through the budget reconciliation process, which delivered critical COVID-19 aid resources to families, schools, small businesses, and communities in need during the pandemic and laid the groundwork for a strong and stable economic recovery.

Wexton also serves on the House Appropriations Committee.
