Freshman Congressman August Pfluger appointed to two national security committees


WASHINGTON, DC (Nexstar)— Congressman August Pfluger has been appointed to serve as a member on both the House Committee on Homeland Security and the House Foreign Affairs Committee for the 117th Congress.

“I am honored and excited to represent the 11th District of Texas on two fantastic committees tasked with defending the security of our nation at home and abroad,” said Pfluger. “The most important role of the federal government is protecting our citizens from national security threats, and both of these committees will allow our district to have a seat at the table regarding immigration and border security, counterterrorism, cyber security, energy, and international trade.”

“With over 1,254 miles of shared border between Texas and Mexico, military intelligence training at Goodfellow Air Force Base, critical border security support operations, and a robust energy and agriculture sector throughout our district, these are more than policies, they are personal,” Pfluger said.
