WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (La.) today congratulated Congressman Bill Flores (Texas) on being elected to serve as Chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC) for the 114th Congress.

“I congratulate Bill Flores today on being elected by our colleagues to serve as the next Chairman of the Republican Study Committee,” Rep. Scalise said. “As the conservative conscience of the House, I am confident that under Bill’s leadership, RSC will continue to unite our Conference around our shared conservative principles of greater opportunity for all Americans through lower taxes, controlled Washington spending, and more individual freedom.

“I congratulate Bill, as well as Representatives Mick Mulvaney and Louie Gohmert for offering their names up to serve in this important position for the conservative movement.”
