Congressman Chris Collins, NY-27, released the following statement after House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan announced Collins will serve as congressional liaison to President-elect Donald Trump's administration transition team.
"I am honored and humbled to serve President-elect Trump in this capacity," Collins said. "Throughout the campaign I have worked very closely with President-elect Trump and Speaker Ryan, and I look forward to continuing that work as we look to put forth an agenda that will 'Make America Great Again' for all Americans."
In his role as congressional liaison, Collins will work with the Republican Conference membership and relay their ideas on legislation, staffing and any additional concerns to the Trump transition team.
Collins was the first member of Congress to endorse Trump for president, and he was recently named as a member of the presidential transition team executive committee.
