Congressman Delgado

In the 116th Congress, U.S. Rep. Antonio Delgado, D-19, will serve on the Agriculture Committee and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

“From Day One I’ve said I want to focus on the priorities of our district, and these committee assignments will give me the ability to do that every day in Congress,” said Delgado.

“As a member of these committees,” he continued.  “I can advocate for key issues ranging from supporting our farmers to expanding rural broadband to improving our water infrastructure. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to make advancements that will have a real impact on families, farmers, and businesses in Upstate New York.”

As a member of the Agriculture and Transportation and Infrastructure Committees, Delgado will analyze, amend, and pass key pieces of legislation that directly impact family farms in Upstate New York, water infrastructure in Hoosick Falls, rural broadband for families and local businesses, and implementation of the new Farm Bill, including its important programs for dairy farmers.

The Transportation and Infrastructure Committee has jurisdiction over all transportation, including highways and bridges, and national infrastructure including water infrastructure and rural economic development. The Agriculture Committee has jurisdiction over a breadth of issues affecting farms and the environment, including crop insurance, rural agriculture development, and food assistance programs.
