Byrne Joins Conservative Republican Study Committee
Washington, DC – January 8, 2014 – In his first week as a United States Congressman, Rep. Bradley Byrne (AL-1) has joined the largest conservative caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives, the Republican Study Committee (RSC). Led by Chairman Steve Scalise (LA-1) and made up of over 160 conservative Members of Congress, the RSC serves as the conservative conscience of the House of Representatives.
Byrne said: “I am excited to join the Republican Study Committee under the leadership of Chairman Steve Scalise. This caucus has a long history of advocating conservative principles. As a conservative, I can think of no better place to join the discussion in shaping a conservative message while building consensus among our conference.
“I look forward to working with Chairman Scalise and the rest of these conservative Members to craft policy that reflects the will of my constituents in South Alabama and will return our country to the truly great nation we know it can be.”
Scalise responded: “Congressman Bradley Byrne is a welcome addition to the Republican Study Committee, and I look forward to working with him to advance conservative solutions. With more than 175 members, the RSC is the largest multi-issue caucus in Congress, and is very involved in drafting and fighting for conservative values in the House. As Bradley fights for the families of Alabama’s First Congressional District, he’ll find many allies in the RSC who are eager to work with him to solve the many problems facing our nation.”
