Bradley Byrne – Joins House Group and Assigned Committees

Representative Bradley Byrne of Alabama’s 1st Congressional District

Joins Republican Study Committee

U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne on Friday joined an influential group of conservative congressmen that his predecessor [Jo Bonner] once quit amid concerns that it was dividing the Republican Party.

Assigned to House Armed Services Committee and the Natural Resources Committee

The first has jurisdiction over military spending, including the Navy’s contract with Austal USA, Mobile’s largest industrial employer, which makes the littoral combat ship.

The Natural Resources Committee had jurisdiction over an issue that figured prominently on the campaign trail – the possibility of turning part of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta into a national park.

My opinion: Byrne has positioned himself very well to provide a strong voice for the citizens of Southwest Alabama.  He has only been in office a little more than a week, yet it appears House Republican Steering Committee is quickly providing him with some of the tools he needs to fulfill the promises he made on the campaign trail.  I am very interested to see how many more political alignments he makes in the coming weeks.
