This week, U.S. Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., announced he will start his congressional career serving on three committees.
Donalds, a former state legislator who was elected to replace retired U.S. Rep. Francis Rooney, R-Fla., will serve on the U.S. House Oversight and Reform, the Budget and the Small Business Committees.
On Tuesday, Donalds said he would use the new assignments to advocate for fiscal conservatism.
“The opportunity to serve my constituents on these three committees is a tremendous honor, and I look forward to continuing to champion common-sense, fiscally sound, and conservative ideals during this Congress,” Donalds said, insisting he has the right background for these committee assignments.
“Prior to dedicating my life to public service, I have built my career working in the finance and banking industries, which allows me to serve these committees well and utilize my years of experience when making critical decisions. As a member of these distinguished committees, I will ensure the federal government is working efficiently and effectively for the American people. Every day I will strive to achieve bipartisan solutions for the mounting issues facing American families, prioritize transparency and accountability, and invigorate access to the American Dream fostering better lives, better communities, and a better America,” said Donalds.
Donalds represents parts of Collier and Lee Counties in what is considered a secure district for Republicans.
