WASHINGTON – Heritage Action, a conservative grassroots organization with two million grassroots activists, released a statement from Executive Director Jessica Anderson supporting the House rules package.
“Today, the House will vote to roll back a number of changes to House Rules that Nancy Pelosi utilized to centralize her power as Speaker and silence the views of most members of Congress. By reforming the way bills are considered, this rules package will restore the voice of all elected members in the legislative process. As a result of these reforms, conservatives will have the tools they need to fight the Biden administration and stand up for American families that have borne the costs of the disastrous policies of the last two years of liberal governance.
Once the House passes this rules package, the real work of governing will begin. Conservatives are pleased to see that the Republican majority has already indicated that they will focus their legislative agenda on our nation’s most pressing issues. Heritage Action looks forward to working with Congress to advance bold policy solutions over easy short cuts. Specifically, Heritage Action’s stance on issues like protecting the sanctity of life and robust immigration priorities should serve as examples of a bold conservative legislative agenda. Now, Congress must get to work.”
