Reynolds, Higgins Named to Committee Posts

By Eileen Buckley

Washington, DC – Congressman Thomas Reynolds, R-Clarence, is gaining more power in Washington.

At the start of the new Congressional term Wednesday, Reynolds received some new appointments. He will now serve on the House Ways and Means Committee and was named as new deputy majority whip.

Reynolds is the only Republican from New York to serve on the powerful Ways and Means Committee.

Reynolds is already chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee.

Meanwhile, Congressman Brian Higgins will get the seat he was seeking on the House Transportation Committee. The freshman Democrat from Buffalo learned of his appointment Wednesday.

Higgins said the main reason he wanted the transportation slot was to press for development of the city's waterfront.
