WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressional Western Caucus Chairman Paul A. Gosar D.D.S. (AZ-04), Congressman Andy Biggs (AZ-05), and Congressman John Curtis (UT-03) issued statements following the leadership and membership changes in the Caucus. Congressman Biggs will serve as the Caucus’ Chief Regulatory Reform Officer for 2018, and Congressman Curtis – the newest Member in the United States House of Representatives – has just joined the Caucus as a member. They issued the following statements:

“My good friend Congressman Biggs is establishing himself as a major player around the Capitol,” said Chairman Gosar. “I am excited to announce that he is coming onboard as the newest member of our Executive Committee. Andy has a passion for liberty and free markets and he is turning that passion into a force for change in Washington. We look forward to working with him to grow and improve the Caucus’ influence in order to make progress on land, water and energy issues. Congratulations, Congressman,” he said. “I am also proud to welcome the newest Member of the House, Congressman Curtis, into the Caucus fold. Congressman Curtis has an impressive record coming into Congress as the successful, longtime Mayor of the great city of Provo, Utah. With these dynamic leaders onboard, 2018 is shaping up to be the most successful year for the Caucus yet,” he concluded.

“I am honored to accept the position of Regulatory Reform Officer of the Congressional Western Caucus,” said Chief Regulatory Reform Officer Andy Biggs. “Chairman Paul Gosar has led the Caucus in an historically effective manner. The Caucus is a strong voice for Westerners who have been burdened by the federal government’s regulatory overreaches. President Trump and members of his Administration have demonstrated that deregulation to achieve economic freedom is a top priority, and they have been incredible allies. In 2017, the administration and the Western Caucus accomplished a lot for hard-working Americans. There is much work to do, though, and I look forward to working with my colleagues to help unleash our economic potential.” 

“I am honored to join the Western Caucus and join the fine public servants that represent some of our country’s most diverse and beautiful places. I look forward to working with all members to advance important issues like rural broadband and other common-sense policies to protect the Western way of life,” said Congressman Curtis.
