Rep. Frank Guinta appointed to House Budget Committee

(WASHINGTON – JANUARY 31, 2011)   Representative Frank Guinta (R, NH-01) has been appointed to serve on the House Committee on the Budget.  Each year, the blueprint that is used to guide the United States government’s spending for the following fiscal year originates in that committee.

“The House Budget Committee welcomes Rep. Frank Guinta, a fierce advocate for fiscal discipline, limited government, and pro-growth economic reforms,” said Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI).  “I look forward to working with and learning from Frank, as we chart a new course to put Washington’s fiscal house in order and help tackle our nation’s most pressing fiscal and economic challenges.”

“I am excited to receive this new assignment,” said Guinta. “It’s an opportunity to make sure New Hampshire’s voice is heard as Congress sets about restoring fiscal sanity and responsibility to Washington.  I look forward to doing everything I can to roll back spending and to slam the brakes on waste.”  

Guinta was previously appointed to two other committees.  He serves on the House Committee for Oversight and Government Regulation, where is Vice Chair of the Subcommittee on TARP, Financial Services and Bailouts of Public and Private Programs.  He also serves on the Subcommittee on Government Organization, Efficiency and Financial Management, as well as the Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs, Stimulus Oversight and Government Spending.


In addition, Guinta is a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, where he serves on the Subcommittee on Aviation, the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit, and the Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation.
