The House Republican Study Committee elected Rep. Jim Jordan as its new chairman, effective when Congress is sworn in in January. The Ohio Republican is a fiscal conservative who contends that families and taxpayers, rather than government, know best how to make decisions about their money.
“I believe strongly in the principles and values that unite our members and look forward to leading a group that will fight for conservative principles, develop policy and be a forum for common sense solutions and ideas,” he said, in reflecting upon his selection to lead the study committee, which will include more than 160 House conservatives in the 112th Congress.
“It is important that the new Congress remembers the message the American people sent on Election Day. People want Congress to stop the out-of-control spending, reverse the expansion of government into people’s personal lives, and put America back on a fiscally responsible track.”
