Rep. Mark Amodei, R-Nev., has been named vice chairman of the Legislative Branch Appropriations Subcommittee.

Subcommittee chairman Tom Graves, R-Ga., said vice chairs of the various subcommittees play an important role in bringing each of the 12 appropriations bills to the House floor.

“His knowledge of the appropriations process and commitment to the subcommittee’s important oversight role will help us make sure every taxpayer dollar under the purview of our subcommittee is spent wisely,” he said of Amodei.

The Legislative Branch subcommittee is responsible for a variety of budgets including that of the House of Representatives, the Capitol, Government Accountability Office and Library of Congress among others.
