Gohmert named House Resources Oversight Subcommitee Chair

Jan. 15, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising House Resources Chairman Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah) and House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) for naming Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) to be the Chairman of the House Resources Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee:

“The decision to name Representative Louie Gohmert as the Chairman of the newly constituted House Resources Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee is welcome news for the country. Not only will the position allow Gohmert to utilize his immense talent to hold bureaucracies like the Bureau of Land Management accountable, but it demonstrates a coming together of the Republican Conference in the 114th Congress around a new, more limited government agenda. Speaker John Boehner and Chairman Rob Bishop are to be commended for choosing Rep. Gohmert to lead the Committee’s oversight efforts.”
