Congressman Mike Rogers made the following statement today after being elected to the Republican Steering Committee this week by his colleagues. The Steering Committee recommends Members of Congress to serve as Full Committee Chairmen based on their background, level of expertise and seniority as well as each Member’s committee assignments. This is Rogers’ second term on the Steering Committee. He is the first Alabamian to serve on the prestigious committee in over a decade.
“I am honored to have been elected to this committee again. As the Steering Committee representative for the Alabama and Tennessee delegations, I look forward to advocating on their behalf before the House Republican Conference. And as one of the representatives of Southern states, I look forward to working on bringing regional balance to chairs and committee assignments,” Rogers said.
Rogers was selected as the Region V representative. Region V encompasses Alabama and Tennessee. The appointment is for the upcoming 115th Congress.
