WASHINGTON, D.C. — This week, Congressman Russ Fulcher was elected by members of the House Republican conference to serve on the Republican Policy Committee for the 118th Congress. He joins the Committee as the Representative for Region 12, which includes the states Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Washington, Oregon, and the territories Guam and American Samoa.

“I am honored to have been elected by my colleagues to serve on the Republican Policy Committee. After four years of failed Democratic leadership, House Republicans stand prepared to offer Americans common-sense policies to our most pressing issues,” stated Rep. Fulcher. “Beginning with our Commitment to America, there is no shortage of serious policy proposals to deal with the inflation, border, and energy crises that President Biden has failed to address. I look forward to working with Chairman Gary Palmer (R-AL) and all members of the Republican Policy Committee to provide an alternative vision for our country  – one based on the founding principles of free enterprise and American values.”

“Congressman Fulcher will be a great asset to the Republican Policy Committee team,” commented RPC Chairman Gary Palmer. “His real-world experience coupled with a focus on sound policy initiatives will help shape solutions for all Americans. I look forward to working with him on ideas for the Republican Conference to enact.”

The Republican Policy Committee, first established in 1949, is an advisory body to the incoming House Republican majority which facilitates the lawmaking process through legislative analysis and conservative policy proposals.
