WASHINGTON, DC – Rules Committee Chairman David Dreier (R-CA) delivered the following statement today on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives:
“Mr. Speaker, I have chosen to leave Congress at the end of this term. I take the unusual step of announcing this from the floor of Congress for two reasons. First, this is where my fellow Californians sent me to represent them. Second, I am a proud institutionalist, and I believe that this institution is as great as it has ever been.
