WASHINGTON, D.C. –U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) was selected to serve as the chairman of the Senate Appropriations subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government (FSGG). This subcommittee is tasked with drafting the spending plan for the agencies within its jurisdiction for the coming fiscal year.
The jurisdiction of the Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee includes the Department of Treasury, Securities and Exchange Commission, Federal Trade Commission, White House, Federal Communications Commission and Small Business Administration, among its long list of crucial agencies.
“Our agencies are important, but so are the paychecks of the American people,” said Sen. Kennedy. “I am honored to serve as chairman of the FSGG subcommittee. In this role, my priorities are to ensure we are spending our money efficiently, that we know how it’s being spent and that we don’t spend a dime more than is necessary.”
