Congressman Hanna Appointed to House Leadership Position
Republican Congressman, Rep. Richard Hanna has been appointed to his first leadership post in the house.
Hanna, who is beginning his second term representing the newly revised 22nd Congressional District, was appointed to chair the House, which reports to the House Small Business Committee.
Hanna, owned his own construction company in Oneida County for more than 30 years, became a multi-millionaire small business owner before he was elected to Congress in 2010.
In this new leadership role, Hanna will lead a subcommittee that oversees the federal procurement system; including programs that help small businesses gain a share of federal contracts.
Hanna says his goal will be to “pursue policies that enable American small businesses to do what they do best – compete and create jobs.”
Hanna previously served as Vice Chair of the House Transportation Committee, which was unable to resolve a new multiyear transportation bill in the last session of congress.
