Vivion Announces: John Katko will serve as top Republican overseeing FEMA

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. John Katko moved up the ranks of House GOP members on Tuesday when he was appointed to serve as the top Republican on a subcommittee that oversees the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA.

Rep. Sam Graves, the top Republican on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, appointed Katko to the Subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings and Emergency Management.

The panel oversees the Northern Border Regional Commission, a partnership between the federal government and states that provides aid for economic development in the most distressed counties of New York, northern Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.

The subcommittee also has jurisdiction over public buildings and federal real estate programs.

For Katko, R-Camillus, the appointment is the latest new leadership role he has gained in his third term representing the 24th Congressional District in Central New York.

He was appointed last year to serve as the top Republican on the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection, and Innovation. Katko’s office said he will continue to serve in that role.
