“Congressman Mike Garcia, R-Santa Clarita, was officially appointed on Tuesday to serve on the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure as well as the House Committee on Space, Science and Technology, officials said…

“’A major concern for many who live in California’s 25th District is the status of our nation’s infrastructure, especially right here in Southern California. For too long, we’ve relied upon an outdated system that is crumbling right before us,’ said Garcia. ‘I am excited to work with my colleagues to find realistic and pragmatic solutions to real-world problems facing California’s 25th District…’

“The House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology has jurisdiction over all energy research, development, and projects as well as all federally-owned or operated non-military energy laboratories; astronautical research and development, including resources, personnel, equipment and facilities; civil aviation research and development; environmental research and development; marine research; commercial application of energy technology.

“’I’m excited to have Congressman Mike Garcia of California join the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee,’ Congressman Frank Lucas (R-OK), the Ranking Member of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology said. ‘His years of experience as a military pilot and a business executive have given him a unique perspective on the value of technological innovation—particularly in aeronautics.’

“’The heartbeat of our nation’s aerospace program is located squarely in Southern California,’ Garcia said. ‘As a member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, I am uniquely positioned to represent our collective interests when it comes to the United States’ future space exploration.’”
