Malliotakis to Serve on House Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11) on January 25 announced her appointment to the coveted House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure:

"As someone who represents a community that’s surrounded by bridges, shipping ports, airports, has assets belonging to the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) and the port authority, and a station for the United States Coast Guard, I’m proud and appreciative of this appointment to the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure," said Congresswoman Malliotakis. "Serving on this committee is incredibly important for my constituents and will allow me to fight for the resources needed to upgrade our city’s aging infrastructure and make investments in new projects that will support our community’s population and economic growth.

"In the New York State Assembly, I served on committees that oversaw the MTA and Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and used my platform to restore bus service, increase transparency, speak out against toll and fare increases, and improve accessorized service for seniors and the disabled. I’m excited to continue this work in the U.S. Congress, especially at this critical time when the new Administration has promised historic investments in new transportation options and to rebuild our nation’s crumbling infrastructure."

The Transportation and Infrastructure Committee is one of the largest committees in Congress and has jurisdiction over all modes of transportation: aviation, maritime and waterborne transportation, highways, bridges, mass transit, and railroads. The Committee also has jurisdiction over other aspects of our national infrastructure, such as clean water and waste water management, the transport of resources by pipeline, flood damage reduction, the management of federally owned real estate and public buildings, the development of economically depressed rural and urban areas, disaster preparedness and response, and hazardous materials transportation.

"Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis is a proven state legislator and an effective advocate for her district," said Ranking Member Sam Graves. "As the only Republican Member of Congress to represent New York City — one of the country’s largest transportation and import-export hubs – she will make a valuable addition to the Committee as we work to develop commonsense proposals to improve the infrastructure for communities of all sizes."

Last week, Congresswoman Malliotakis was also named an Assistant Whip for the House Republican Conference.
