U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel, D-Fla., announced she will serve a third term on the U.S. House Appropriations Committee.
“Serving on the Appropriations Committee presents me with the opportunity to influence federal spending,” said Frankel. “In that role, I will continue to champion the well-being of our working families and seniors.”
“The Appropriations Committee is responsible for setting annual spending for federal government departments, agencies, and programs. As a member of the Committee, Rep. Frankel has successfully advocated for federal funding for Everglades restoration, Israel’s defense programs, women’s health care, fall prevention, child care, education, and local nonprofit and government projects through Community Project Funding,” Frankel’s office noted.
Now 74, Frankel served two terms as mayor of West Palm Beach and almost a decade and a half in the Florida House, including leading Democrats in that chamber. First elected to Congress in 2012, Frankel represents parts of Palm Beach County.
