Congressman Steven M. Palazzo is proud to serve the people of South Mississippi's 4th Congressional District,which includes Mississippi's Gulf Coast and Pine Belt regions.As a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, current member of the Mississippi National Guard,and former member of the Mississippi House of Representatives, Congressman Palazzo has a record of service that began long before he was first sworn into office on January 5, 2011. Steven currently serves on the House Appropriations Committee, where he sits on two subcommittees- the Commerce, Justice, Science subcommittee, and the Homeland Security Subcommittee. His committee is responsible for allocating every dollar of federal discretionary spending. Since his first term, Steven has served on the Majority Whip team. He also spent five years as the Chairman of the Space Subcommittee, overseeing the country's space program and ensuring America's continued access to space. Before being selected for the Appropriations Committee, Congressman Palazzo also sat on the House Armed Services and Homeland Security Committees. His military experience also provided the opportunity for Steven to lead the House National Guard Caucus, where he remains chairman. In 2016, he also took the helm of the House Aerospace Caucus. In these roles, he has been a consistent advocate for a strong national defense, a leader on veterans' issues, and a champion for bringing fiscal common-sense back to Washington by supporting balanced budgets and pro-growth policies. Congressman Palazzo believes in smart federal investment while cutting the true drivers of our national debt- mandatory spending. Steven's prior life includes experience working on oil rigs, serving on active duty overseas, and starting and owning his own small business. He also served in the Mississippi House of Representatives from 2006 to 2010. A Gulf Coast native, Steven is the proud father of three children-Barrett, Aubrey and Bennett.
