U.S. Rep. Marc Veasey, D-Fort Worth, has been appointed to the House Committee on Small Business for the 116th Congress.

“I’m honored to represent the people of North Texas on the House Committee on Small Business,” Veasey said in a statement.

“One of my priorities in this committee is to see growth in the business sector and remove the financial barriers minority-owned small businesses face to create more opportunity and good-paying jobs in North Texas,” he said.

U.S. Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez, in her 13th term as representative for New York’s 7th Congressional District, is chair of the committee. She was the first Puerto Rican woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1992.

The House Select Committee on Small Business was created in 1941and became a permanent standing committee in 1975 and is the House’s primary venue for small business policy matters.

“Diversity and strength is the engine of American innovation and economic success,” Veasey said. “Therefore, I’m excited to move forward with Chairwoman Velázquez and my colleagues to implement legislation to help grow minority and women-owned small businesses in Texas and across the country.”
