“I appreciate Speaker Weatherford’s confidence in giving me this assignment and I look forward to working with my colleagues to reduce wasteful government spending,” said Ingram.
The Appropriations Committee produces the House’s proposed budget, reviews the Governor’s budget recommendations and provides legislative oversight of budgetary implementation. The Government Operations Appropriations Subcommittee oversees funding for the Departments of Revenue, Financial Services, Management Services, the Lottery, Business & Professional Regulation and the Public Service Commission.
“As many hard-working Floridians continue to struggle during these tough economic times, we face difficult decisions in the days ahead,” Ingram continued. “I am extremely honored to serve on the Appropriations Committee where I have the opportunity to help craft a lean and responsible state budget.”
In addition to serving as Appropriations Subcommittee Chair, Rep. Ingram will also serve on the Energy & Utilities Subcommittee, the Insurance & Banking Subcommittee and the Local & Federal Affairs Committee.
