Press Release

“These appointments grant me the opportunity to address the needs of the 4th district”

WASHINGTON – Representative Thomas Massie of Kentucky’s 4th district has been selected to serve on the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure as its newest member. Additionally, Congressman Massie has been selected for both the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.

“It is an honor for me to be selected to serve on these vital committees,” said Rep. Massie. “These appointments grant me the opportunity to address the needs of the people of the 4th district, and I am excited to begin the important work of serving my fellow citizens.”

With his selection to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, Massie will likely be the only member of Kentucky’s delegation serving on that committee. The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure has jurisdiction over roads, bridges, mass transit, railroads, aviation, maritime and waterborne transit.

Massie’s selection to the Oversight and Government Reform Committee puts him in a position to hold the federal government accountable to taxpayers. The Oversight Committee is responsible for oversight of virtually everything government does – from national security to regulatory reform.

Also, Rep. Massie's background from MIT and the high-tech business world makes him uniquely qualified to serve his state and country on the Science, Space, and Technology Committee.
