Graves' district includes all of Paulding County.
“I am grateful for subcommittee assignments that connect me to some of Georgia’s most important industries. With the Savannah Harbor project moving forward and the potential for another military base realignment and closure round, these assignments provide me with a unique opportunity to be a watchdog for the top priorities of our state and region. I also look forward to holding the Veterans Affairs Department accountable for its treatment of America’s heroes.
“Looking at the year ahead, we have some hope of returning to regular order, which will make the appropriations process more open and transparent. There will certainly be new opportunities to save taxpayer dollars and hold the massive federal bureaucracy accountable for waste and overreach. With every hearing and every bill, we will continue the work of building the committee’s reputation as a place where bloated budgets get cut and the American people get a better deal.”
In the first session of the 113th Congress, Graves served on the Subcommittees on Financial Services, the Interior, and Commerce, Justice and Science. He has served on the Appropriations Committee since 2011.
