Rep. Frank Guinta receives his full House committee and subcommittee assignments

(WASHINGTON – JANUARY 21, 2011)   Representative Frank Guinta (R/NH-01) has been informed of the full list of House subcommittees on which he will be serving for the next two years.

On Thursday, Guinta was appointed to three key Congressional subcommittees.  House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman John L. Mica (R-FL) named Guinta to the Subcommittee on Aviation, the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit, and the Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation.

“We must do more with less and eliminate wasteful spending when it comes to rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure and putting people back to work,” said Chairman Mica.  “Congressman Guinta’s background and experience as a state legislator and mayor of Manchester facing tough budget issues make him a valuable addition to these subcommittees. His input will be critical to the work of producing fiscally responsible legislation to improve our nation’s infrastructure.”

The Subcommittee on Aviation oversees aviation safety and infrastructure and the programs of the Federal Aviation Administration, including NextGen air traffic control modernization.  The Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation has jurisdiction over the United States Coast Guard and the nation’s shipping laws, including regulation of ocean shipping by the Federal Maritime Commission.  The Subcommittee on Highways and Transit has jurisdiction of issues related to construction of roads, bridges and transit facilities, highway safety, and the development of national surface transportation policy. 

Those appointments round out Guinta’s assignment for the 112th Congress.  It was previously announced that he will serve as Vice Chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform’s important Subcommittee on TARP, Financial Services and Bailouts of Public and Private Programs.  He will also serve on the Subcommittee on Government Organization, Efficiency and Financial Management, as well as the Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs, Stimulus Oversight and Government Spending.
