Rep. Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03) has been appointed to the Border Security Conference Committee, which is part of the deal President Trump and Congress reached Friday in order to reopen the government. 

The H.J. Res 31 Conference Committee is a joint resolution for Democratic and Republican lawmakers to continue working on an agreement for border security for the three weeks the government will be open. 

“It is a privilege to be named as a conferee on the H.J. Res. 31 Conference Committee and to be tasked with putting forth a solution to remedy the ongoing crisis at our southern border,” Fleischmann said in a statement. “I look forward to bringing my perspective and insight as Ranking Member on the Homeland Security Subcommittee as well as hearing that of my colleagues on the conference committee. Together, we will work to deliver the border security plan that the American people want and deserve. Let’s get to work.”
