(Washington, D.C.) – On January 26, 2021, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced that Congressman Albio Sires (D-NJ) will serve on the House Committee on the Budget for the 117th Congress. He will continue to serve on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and the House Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure.

Sires. “Last Congress, the Budget Committee looked at numerous important issues that impact millions of Americans and the federal budget, including immigration, poverty, climate change, and heath care systems.

I am eager to get to work to enact real change for my constituents and meet the needs of families across the country in this challenging time.”
