Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Congressman Greg Pence (IN-06) announced that he will serve on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, where he looks forward to working on behalf of Hoosiers.

“It is an honor and a privilege to be selected to serve on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee,” Congressman Pence said Wednesday. “I look forward to getting things done for the people of Indiana’s 6th District and for Hoosiers.”

As a business leader and life-long Hoosier, Congressman Pence understands the importance of infrastructure investment and developments in transportation technology.

"Infrastructure investment is critical to the future of our economy," The Congressman said. "As the Crossroads of America, Indiana can continue to lead."

The Committee has jurisdiction over all modes of transportation—aviation, 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.

"Infrastructure is a major national priority for the President and the Congress, and I believe this is an issue on which we can find common ground," Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Ranking Member Sam Graves (MO-06) said. "I am excited to have Congressman Greg Pence on the Committee and I know he comes ready to work for the people of Indiana’s Sixth District and the American people to get something done for our country’s infrastructure."

Congressman Pence is a husband, grandfather, small businessman and veteran who will bring his Hoosier values to Washington, D.C. to help restore the American Dream. The Congressman and his wife Denise reside in Columbus, in the same house in which they raised their four children.
