Statement from Diane Black on Designation as House Budget Committee Chairman

Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Diane Black released the following statement on her designation by the House Republican Steering Committee as Chairman of the House Budget Committee:

“I’m honored that my colleagues have put their trust in me to lead the House Budget Committee. As a small business owner, a nurse and most importantly, a wife, mother, and grandmother, I’m committed to putting conservative principles into action to bring real change that helps Tennesseans and the American people. We have an exciting opportunity to unleash the power of American small businesses, bring our fiscal house in order, and fix our broken health care system, and I look forward to leading the Budget Committee as we work to accomplish these goals.”

*This selection will become final upon a vote of ratification by the House Republican Conference on Thursday morning.
