WASHINGTON – Today, members of the Republican Study Committee (RSC) elected Congressman Jim Banks (IN-3) as the Chairman of RSC for the 117th Congress. RSC Chairman Mike Johnson (LA-04) and Congressman Jim Banks released the following statements:
“The Republican Study Committee will be in great hands in the 117th Congress with my good friend and colleague, Congressman Jim Banks, at the helm. I know Jim will provide principled leadership for our caucus, maintain the structural improvements we've implemented the past two years, and help advance the important policy solutions that our members have developed. RSC is well positioned to continue to lead as the 'intellectual arsenal' of conservatism in the House, and I have total confidence in our new chairman to guide our group in this next critical season," said Johnson.
“Under Chairman Mike Johnson’s leadership, the Republican Study Committee has produced the legislative playbook for conservatives that we’ll use this upcoming term and when we win back the House majority in 2022. I thank Chairman Johnson for his service to our conservative cause and putting in such hard work over the last two years, and I look forward to continuing the mission of Republican Study Committee next term,” said Banks.
