Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on the retirement announcement of Congressman David Price of North Carolina:

“For over three decades, Congressman David Price has been a valued and trusted voice in the House Democratic Caucus.  His longtime leadership for the people of North Carolina’s Fourth and our nation will be missed upon his retirement next year.

“As the representative of the Triangle, home to some of America’s most esteemed universities, Congressman Price has led the charge on issues of education, science and technology.  His leadership has helped bring a college education within reach to countless Americans, and his tireless advocacy for federal investment in research and development has helped power the engine of American innovation.  At the helm of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, he also has served as a ‘Cardinal of the Congress’ – helping guide the appropriations process with his steady hand and legislative experience.

“I join my Congressional colleagues in gratitude for Congressman Price’s service, as well as his continued leadership through the remainder of his term.  We wish him and his wife Lisa the best as they prepare to begin their next chapter together.”
