HINJ on December 2 extended our sincere congratulations to New Jersey Congressman Rodney P. Frelinghuysen (R-11) on his election as Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee.

“Chairman Frelinghuysen is a true public servant who has dedicated his career to the betterment of his constituents, our great state of New Jersey and our nation,” said Dean J.
