Chairman Rogers Congratulates Congressman Ryan on Election as Speaker of the House

Says Speaker Ryan Will Demonstrate Commitment to Fiscal Responsibility, Regular Order

Washington, October 29, 2015

House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers today released the following statement congratulating Congressman Paul Ryan on his election to the office of Speaker of the House:

“I congratulate Paul Ryan on being selected as the next Speaker of the House. At a time when we need a unifying force with clear vision and strong values, he is the man for the job. Paul is a tested leader, who has proven his mettle by taking on the challenges that others shy away from, and I expect he will do the same in his new role. He brings to the table fresh ideas, but he upholds the deepest respect for this institution and its traditions.

“Having worked with Paul in his roles as Chairman of the Budget Committee and now the Ways and Means Committee, I have seen firsthand his commitment to getting our fiscal house in order and I am proud to support him today. I look forward to continuing to work with him to return to regular order, balance our budgets, limit the reach of the federal government, and find workable and realistic solutions to our greatest fiscal problems.”
