New Congress Will Feature Six Main Street Members as Committee Chairs
WASHINGTON – The Republican Main Street Partnership, comprising of nearly eighty Members of Congress, will now include six key Committee Chairs in the upcoming 115th Congress. A nearly two-decade old organization, the Republican Main Street Partnership stands as the largest Member of Congress-driven organization off Capitol Hill, representing over one-third of the Republican caucus in Congress.
Following this week’s various leadership elections and appointments, the Republican Main Street Partnership will now include the following Committee Chairs:
Appropriations: Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ)
Energy and Commerce: Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR)
Transportation and Infrastructure: Rep. Bill Shuster (R-PA)
Ethics: Rep. Susan Brooks (R-IN)
Joint Economic Committee: Rep. Pat Tiberi (R-OH)
National Republican Congressional Committee: Rep. Steve Stivers (R-OH)
“The Republican Main Street Partnership has achieved a new plateau for both membership and committee chairs in our two-decade history,” said Sarah Chamberlain, President and CEO of the Republican Main Street Partnership. “Our growth is a testament to the types of members we recruit and defend; members who are dedicated to solution-driven policies and legislation from the governing-wing of the Republican Party,” said Chamberlain. “On behalf of all of our members, I want to extend a well-earned congratulations to all of our new Committee Chairs in the 115th Congress,” Chamberlain concluded.
