U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Niles, D-13th, has been selected to serve on two U.S. subcommittees of the House Appropriations Committee — Defense, and Transportation, Housing and Urban Development.

The two subcommittees oversee about $600 billion in discretionary funding, Ryan said.

“By reclaiming my seat on the Defense Subcommittee, I am well-positioned to continue my efforts to ensure that our military has the resources it needs to defend our nation, that those resources are well-spent, that our domestic defense manufacturing base remains strong and that our [members of the military] remain the best-trained and best-equipped force in the world,” Ryan said. “As a new member of the Subcommittee on Transportation and Housing and Urban Development, I look forward to making smart investments to enhance the safety and sustainability of our nation’s infrastructure and livability of our cities and towns.”

Ryan returned to Appropriations earlier this month. He served four years on the powerful committee before losing his seat in January 2011 when Republicans took control of the House and lowered the number of Democrats on the committee from 37 to 21.

He also served on the Defense Subcommittee before losing that seat.

Ryan also serves on the House Budget Committee.
