The subcommittee — along with its counterpart in the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee — oversees funding for the House of Representatives, Architect of the Capitol, Library of Congress, Capitol Police, Congressional Budget Office, Government Printing Office, Government Accountability Office and House committees.

Cole calls the appointment an honor and Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers said Cole will be an asset as the subcommittee's new leader.
