Senator David Perdue Announces Committee Assignments For 116th Congress

Perdue To Continue Serving On Armed Services, Banking, Budget, Agriculture Committees

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) announces he will continue serving on the Armed Services, Banking, Budget, and Agriculture Committees in the 116th Congress. Senator Perdue’s role on these influential committees puts him at the intersection of solving our national debt and global security crises.

On the Armed Services Committee, Senator Perdue fully supports our national defense priorities:

“The women and men who serve in uniform represent the very best of America. It is our responsibility to make sure our troops have the tools they need to defend our nation against evolving threats. In order to rebuild our military after years of disinvestment, we must continue to modernize our capabilities, improve readiness, and increase accountability at the Department of Defense.”

On the Banking Committee, Senator Perdue is working to improve our financial system:

“Overregulation has sucked the very life out of our free-enterprise system. By rolling back confusing and often contradictory regulations, and undoing the most onerous parts of Dodd-Frank, we’ve begun freeing up trapped capital and started to put it to work in our economy. These efforts are making banks work for average Americans and generating much-needed economic growth to help solve our national debt crisis.”

On the Budget Committee, Senator Perdue is fighting to fix Washington’s broken funding process:

“Washington is locked in a cycle of continuing resolutions and last-minute spending deals. This is totally irresponsible. We need a politically-neutral platform to fund the government on time, every year. Fixing the funding process alone will not solve our debt crisis, but we won’t solve this debt crisis until we fix our broken funding process.”

On the Agriculture Committee, Senator Perdue is a strong voice for Georgia’s farmers:

“Agriculture is Georgia’s number one industry and a major reason why our state continues to be the best state in the country in which to do business. Growing up working on my family’s farm, I learned at an early age that agriculture is not just a business – it's a way of life. To keep thriving, our farm families need more certainty from Washington and fewer rules and regulations.”
