Cathy McMorris Rodgers: Part of the new GOP Leadership

The RNLA is pleased to announce the fourth ranking member of U.S. House Leadership and highest-ranking Republican Woman in Congress, Cathy McMorris Rodgers, will address our May DC Luncheon.

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers is Eastern Washington’s chief advocate in Congress and one of the rising stars in American politics. Since first being elected to the House in 2004, she has earned the trust of her constituents and praise on Capitol Hill for her hard work, conservative principles, bipartisan outreach, and leadership. She is currently serving as the Chair of the House Republican Conference, a position making her the fourth highest-ranking Republican, and the highest ranking female Republican in the House of Representatives. As someone who grew up on a family farm, worked at a small business, and later became a wife and mom, Cathy McMorris Rodgers has lived the American Dream, and she sees her chief goal in Congress as rebuilding that Dream for our children and grandchildren.

On some key issues.

As Prime Minister Netanyahu has said, Israel is not what’s wrong in the Middle East — Israel is what is right in the Middle East. It now looks like the steady and familiar hand of the prime minister will continue to steer the Israeli ship of state after the resounding Likud victory. Israelis turned out to cast their votes in record numbers for dozens of political parties, ranging from the conservative religious groups to the far left and Israeli Arabs. The whole world saw that Israel is a land that cherishes free speech and open debate.

In recent years, their regulations have been created behind closed doors, with little concern for the financial burden they have on Eastern Washington families and small business owners. This bill requires the EPA's Science Advisory Board to consult the people who will be impacted the most, requiring peer review and constructive conversation. Through peer-reviewed science, the EPA can set standards that will not only regulate our environmental concerns, but also grant flexibility to American entrepreneurs.  I will continue my efforts to hold the EPA accountable and empower thousands of Americans in Eastern Washington and across the country who have been harmed by unnecessary regulations. 
National Security
I stand opposed to the President’s unilateral executive overreach on immigration – an action that blatantly disregards the will of Congress and the American people, and one that represents a step backward on real, long-term immigration solutions. That is why I will continue this fight. I will continue to represent the people of Eastern Washington, uphold the Constitution, and listen to the American people.
