WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) formally announced the membership of seven new issue-based Republican Task Forces designed to identify and develop policy solutions to issues facing the American people. Congressman Russ Fulcher was selected to serve on the Big Tech Censorship and Data task force, led by Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, that will look into matters concerning data privacy, security, competition issues, and accountability.
“The influence big tech companies have over how we get our information and share our opinions grows more substantial with each year.” Rep. Fulcher commented on his appointment to the task force, “And when it comes to arbitrary bans and censoring speech, there is no longer a question of the bias existing. It is time we start reigning in their power and ensuring these companies are held accountable for their actions. I am honored to be appointed to the leadership team concerning these efforts.”
Leader McCarthy commented, "From President Biden's Border Crisis to soaring consumer costs, and the rising crimes caused by the 'Defund the Police' movement, Democrats' disastrous policies have left Americans hurting in ways we haven't seen in decades. The American people need reassurances from their elected officials that they will work to make neighborhoods safer, our border secure, and make the American dream even more accessible. When Republicans retake the majority, we will come prepared to implement policies that will actually solve problems and improve people's lives. That is why earlier this year I informed the conference that we would be rolling out Republican Task Forces designed to tackle the several crises that currently threaten our great nation. Today, I am proud to formally announce both the task force leaders and the full list of members who will be fighting to better our country for all Americans. These task forces will be critical in building consensus around ideas to continue to build on our Commitment to America and ensure that the next century is an American one,".
