Congresswoman Betty McCollum

Representing the 4th District of Minnesota

Committees & Caucuses

Committee Membership

Congresswoman McCollum brings a common sense, Minnesota perspective to her work as a member of the House Appropriations Committee where she serves as the Ranking Member of the Interior-Environment Subcommittee and as a member of the Defense Subcommittee.

Protecting clean air and water, wild lands, and our nation’s natural treasures for future generations are among McCollum’s top priorities as she leads Democrats on the Interior-Environment Subcommittee, which appropriates more than $30 billion anually. The Environmental Protection Agency, the Interior Department, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the U.S. Forest Service, the National Endowments for the Arts and the Humanities, the Smithsonian Institution, and several other related agencies were among those funded by the subcommittee. 

As a member of the Defense Subcommittee, McCollum believes national security starts by ensuring that the women and men of the Armed Forces are the most skilled and best trained and equipped fighting force in the world.  McCollum has focused on giving priority to military health care, ending military sexual assault, and supporting international military-to-military cooperation to prevent conflicts. In recent years, the subcommittee appropriated more than $500 billion annually for the Departments of the Army, Navy (including Marine Corps), Air Force, National Guard, Office of Secretary of Defense, Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and other related national security agencies.
