Energy and Commerce Committee

Congressman Flores is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The Energy and Commerce Committee is the oldest standing legislative committee in the House of Representatives.

Committee on the Budget 

Congressman Flores rejoined the Committee on the Budget for the 116th Congress as designee of the Republican Leader, Kevin McCarthy. Best known for its role of drafting and preparing the Concurrent Resolution on the Budget, commonly referred to as the “budget resolution,” the Committee on the Budget is responsible for legislative oversight of the federal budget process, reviewing all bills and resolutions on the budget and monitoring agencies and programs funded outside of the budgetary process. It became an standing committee in 1974 when the basic framework that is used today for congressional consideration of budget policy was established in the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974 (the Budget Act). The Committee on the Budget allows Congressman Flores to use his experience and personal values to influence all budget-related legislation before it reaches the House floor in a responsible, reform-minded manner.

I wholeheartedly commend Dr. McKown for her commitment to higher education and serving Central Texas. We are grateful for the work she does on behalf of McLennan Community College and its students. Her leadership was influential as I worked to develop a thoughtful position on how to approach solutions for our Dreamer population. It is an honor to represent great leaders like Dr. McKown in Congress. I congratulate her on this significant milestone and wish her continued success.
