InfoTodd Tiahrt (R-Goddard) began serving the 4th District of Kansas in Congress in 1995. He was appointed to the powerful House Appropriations Committee in 1997 and also serves as Deputy Majority Whip

Todd is a champion of taxpayers and those who believe in the traditional American values of integrity, faith, and family. Todd grew up on his family's farm where, at a young age, he learned the values of hard work and frugality

Before his service in Congress, he was employed by the Boeing Company in Wichita for 13 years, where he worked on various aerospace projects including the Space Station, Air Force One and the Comanche helicopter

As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, Todd is in a unique position ro fight for the interest of all Kansans and for fiscal responsibility in the federal budget process. All non-entitlement spending bills pass through this important committee. Todd serves on the Defense, Transportation, and TPO (Treasury, Postal Service and General Government) Subcommittees of the Appopriations Committee

Todd has leveraged his seniority on the powerful panel to exempt Kansas form the restricite Wright Amendment that hindered competitive air service between Wichita and Dallas/Ft. Worth. As Vice Chairman of the Transportation Subcommittee, Todd has been instrumental in securing federal dollars for important airport runway upgrades throughout the 4th district, as well as research grants for Wichita State University's National Institute for Aviation Research

Working in a bipartisan spirit with members of the Defense Subcommittee, Todd was able to shepherd legislation through Congress that allowed the US Air Force to lease Boeing 767s Air Refueling Tankers. It has been estimated the program would vreate approximately 2,500 jobs in Wichita and south-central Kansas

In addition to assisting Kansas communities with important public works projects, education grants and environmental remediation, Todd led the way to secure critical federal relief for those families devastated by floods in the late 1990s

As a member of Congress, Todd has received numerous honors for his voting record on behalf of taxpayers, seniors, and American familie, including the Spirit of Enterprise Award from the US Chamber of Commerce, being named a Super Friend of Seniors, a Champion of Private Property Rights and a Taxpayer's Hero
