Congressman Collins Assigned to New Committees WASHINGTON, D.C. — Western New York Congressman Chris Collins has new committee assignments as a new session begins on Capitol Hill
The Republican, now in his second term, will serve on the House Energy and Commerce Commerce as well as the Health, Communications and Technology, and Oversight and Investigations Subcommittees. Collins said the new assignments will give him more influence over issues vital to Western New York, like funding for certain medical centers and broadband internet for rural areas.Collins has also been a long supporter of hydraulic fracturing. He hopes hearings will prove Governor Cuomo’s decision to ban the gas drilling method was not the right call. “I can help bring facts forward to show that the governor made the wrong decision and economically New York State needs to be hydrofracking, and certainly in the Southern Tier the benefits would be tremendous for jobs and the economy,” said Collins.
Clearly Collins doesn’t know Cuomo very well.
