WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman David Dreier (R-CA), House Rules Committee Chairman, announced today that Congressman Rob Bishop (R-UT) will rejoin the committee for the 112thCongress.
“Rob Bishop is a natural addition to our new Majority on the House Rules Committee,” Dreier said. “He was an excellent member when he served here previously and he has since proven himself to be one of the most thoughtful, diligent members of the House. He led the effort, along with Transition Chairman Greg Walden, to reform the House Rules and make our work more transparent and accountable to the American people. I welcome him back to the Rules Committee and look forward to his leadership in the 112th Congress.”
Bishop, who served on the House Rules Committee in the 109th Congress, joins returning members Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX) and Congresswoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC), as well as new members Congressmen Rob Woodall (R-GA), Rich Nugent (R-FL), Tim Scott (R-SC), and Daniel Webster (R-FL). One more Majority member is expected to join the Committee in the next few weeks.
