AUSTIN- This morning, the House Committee on Appropriations Chairman Jim Pitts announced sub-committee appointments for members. Representative Oscar Longoria was named to the sub-committee on General Government and Vice-Chairman of the newly created Budget Transparency and Reform sub-committee.

“It is already a great honor to be on the Appropriations Committee, and I am very pleased that Chairman Pitts has appointed me Vice-Chairman of the new Budget Transparency and Reform sub-committee," said Longoria. "I am content with both assignments and look forward to working diligently on the issues that will be brought before these sub-committees."
