Rep. Graves Statement on Chairman Frelinghuysen Retirement

Washington, January 29, 2018 - Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement after House Appropriations Committee Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ-11) announced he would not seek reelection:

“Chairman Frelinghuysen served his constituents honorably in the U.S. House for more than two decades. Throughout my time serving with him, I always appreciated his honesty, inclusiveness and good sense of humor. I'm especially grateful for his support and leadership last year in passing all 12 annual appropriations bills before the end of the fiscal year for the first time in nearly a decade. I look forward to repeating that effort this year! I wish Chairman Frelinghuysen all the best in the next phase of his life.”
