Washington, DC — Committee on House Administration Ranking Member Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) welcomes Republican members, U.S. Reps. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) and Bryan Steil (R-Wisc.), to the committee for the 117th Congress.

Loudermilk has served on the committee since the 115th Congress and Steil served as Republican leader of the Communications Standards Commission for the 116th Congress.

“I want to welcome Reps. Loudermilk and Steil to the committee for 117thCongress,” said Davis. “This committee took on many important issues last Congress from what kind of election reforms are needed for Congress to address to preparing the House for a pandemic no one expected. We fought against Democrats’ efforts to nationalize our elections by opposing H.R. 1, offered alternatives to helping states hold elections during a pandemic, and worked in a bipartisan way to prepare the House to continue to function during the worst days of this pandemic. With more and more people being vaccinated every day, we need to work together to get this House back to some semblance of normalcy. I hope Republicans and Democrats we can work together on election reforms that don’t seek to nationalize our elections, but instead, help states protect the integrity of our elections and restore the public’s faith in our election process. The 117th Congress began like no other Congress has and I hope no other Congress will again. This committee has a responsibility to help ensure this Capitol is never overrun by any mob ever again. I hope we can work across the aisle and across the Capitol to ensure it isn’t. We may be the smallest committee in Congress, but we have a lot work to do and I couldn’t think of two members better to help us lead on these important issues than Reps. Loudermilk and Steil.”
 
“Even though its role is not well known outside of  Washington, DC, the Committee on House Administration plays a vital role in several issues that are currently on the forefront of Americans’ concerns. With jurisdiction over federal election law, to oversight of Capitol Police, the importance of the Committee on House Administration is extremely vital,” said Loudermilk. “I am honored to be a part of this important committee in the 117th Congress. I look forward to working with Ranking Member Davis, Rep. Bryan Steil, and my colleagues across the aisle, on big issues like securing our elections and supporting our Capitol Hill Police, so they are better prepared and equipped to safely guard our nation’s capital.”

“I am pleased to serve on the House Administration Committee with Ranking Member Davis. The Committee has a major role to play in ensuring the efficient operations of the House of Representatives and ensuring that the People’s House truly does work for the people. This Committee also has an opportunity to address election reforms. I look forward to playing a role in helping states guarantee our elections are fair, secure, and transparent and that many of the concerns highlighted by the past election are addressed,” said Steil.
