Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (NJ-12), who is a member of the Appropriations Subcommittee for Transportation and Housing and Urban Development, issued the following statement:

“Secretary Fudge has been a champion of the underserved and the people who need help the most throughout her decades of public service,” said Rep. Watson Coleman. “Her career is a testament to the best that government can be: a place where we take care of one another.
