Subcommittee on Aviation
Ranking Member: Representative Steve Cohen (D-TN)
“Seniority has its privileges, and I am pleased I make good use of mine with service on the Subcommittees and Committees best serving the interests of Tennessee’s 9th Congressional District,” Representative Cohen said. “In these senior roles, I will be in a position to set the agenda and shape policy in the areas of both transportation and federal legal rights and protections. I appreciate the confidence my colleagues in Leadership have shown in putting me in these positions and will work diligently to advance the best interests of our nation.”
Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation
Ranking Member: Representative Salud Carabajal (D-CA)
"As the top Democrat on the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Subcommittee last Congress, I helped lead our efforts to pass key pieces of legislation that support our Coasties, ease supply chain disruptions, and make our seas safer. In particular, in the aftermath of the Conception boat fire off the coast of my district, I'm proud of the new laws that we passed to reform both safety and maritime liability laws using the tragic lessons of that incident," Representative Carbajal said. "I am honored to be selected to continue in that role in the 118th Congress, and look forward to working with Ranking Member Larsen, Chair Graves, and the rest of our committee to build on that progress in the coming term."
Subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings, and Emergency Management

“Investing in our infrastructure impacts not only the local economy of Nevada’s First District, but – with Las Vegas’ deep and vibrant ties to the tourism and hospitality sectors – industries across the U.S. and communities around the world,” Representative Titus said. “As Ranking Member of the Economic Development Subcommittee, I look forward to advocating for District One’s continued economic security and resiliency.”
Subcommittee on Highways and Transit
Ranking Member: Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC)
"Transportation and infrastructure issues are among the most bipartisan in the House and Senate, and I hope the spirit of bipartisanship on T&I continues in the 118th Congress," Congresswoman Norton said. "I look forward to focusing particularly on rising issues, among them, reducing congestion, addressing climate change, and encouraging innovation, while continuing to prioritize investment in infrastructure for D.C., the national capital region and the country as Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit.”
