Congressman Rouzer serves on the following committees:
Transportation & Infrastructure Committee
The Committee has jurisdiction over all modes of transportation – our aviation system, highways and bridges, transit and rail transportation, pipelines, and maritime and waterborne transportation. The Committee also has jurisdiction over wastewater infrastructure, the Nation’s emergency preparedness and response programs, public buildings and federal real estate management, federal economic development agencies, and one of America’s five Armed Forces: the U.S. Coast Guard.
Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment, Chairman
The jurisdiction of the Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment consists generally of matters relating to water resources development, conservation and management, water pollution control and water infrastructure, and hazardous waste cleanup. A number of agencies administer programs that address one or more of these issues; two agencies in particular, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), oversee the larger programs of concern to the Subcommittee. One of the highest priorities of the Subcommittee is the regular passage of a Water Resources Development Act to continue improving America’s ports, locks, dams, inland waterways, and other water resources infrastructure. Congress is back on track to authorizing water resources infrastructure improvements every two years, and we must maintain this schedule to strengthen our economic competitiveness.
Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines, and Hazardous Materials
The Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines, and Hazardous Materials has jurisdiction over the economic and safety regulation of railroads, the transportation of hazardous materials, and the issue of pipeline safety.
The House Committee on Agriculture was created on May 3, 1820, after Lewis Williams of North Carolina sponsored a resolution to create the Committee which gave agricultural issues equal weight with commercial and manufacturing interests. The Committee has, by direct action of the House, secured jurisdiction over agriculturally related subjects and issues facing farmers and ranchers and the rural communities they call home to make sure all Americans have food, fiber, and fuel. One of the highest priorities of the Committee is crafting the Farm Bill. The Farm Bill typically is renewed about every five years. Since the 1930s, Congress has enacted 18 farm bills.
Subcommittee on General Farm Commodities, Risk Management, and Credit
The Subcommittee has jurisdiction over policies, statutes, and markets relating to commodities including barley, cotton, cottonseed, corn, grain sorghum, honey, mohair, oats, other oilseeds, peanuts, pulse crops, rice, soybeans, sugar, wheat, and wool; the Commodity Credit Corporation; risk management policies and statutes, including Federal Crop Insurance; producer data and privacy issues; agricultural credit; and related oversight of such issues.
Subcommittee on Commodity Markets, Digital Assets, and Rural Development
The Subcommittee has jurisdiction over policies, statutes, and markets relating to commodity exchanges; rural development; energy; rural electrification; and related oversight of such issues.
