Washington—Yesterday, members of the House Freedom Caucus (HFC) elected Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) as the committee's next chairman. Heritage Action for America released the following statement from Executive Director Tim Chapman:
During his tenure in Congress, Congressman Biggs has advanced conservative policy priorities on issues ranging from immigration reform and border security to tax reform and fiscal responsibility. In an era of unaccountable government, Congressman Biggs and the House Freedom Caucus have kept their promises to voters and working-class Americans to fight against business as usual in Washington, D.C.
Heritage Action thanks Congressman Mark Meadows for his incredible service as chairman and his continued commitment to conservative principles. As the baton passes to Congressman Biggs, we congratulate him and look forward to working with the Caucus to advance conservative policies that make life better for all Americans.
