Rep. William L. Owens, D-Plattsburgh, has been confirmed for a place on the House Appropriations Committee, which has authority over federal spending.

In a statement from his office, Mr. Owens said the appointment would allow the region to have a voice in funding for federal spending that helps local farmers and Fort Drum, and help reduce the federal deficit by eliminating wasteful spending.
