Senator Lee to head steering committee


U.S. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah), who represents Morgan County in Washington, was selected today to be the next chairman of the Senate Steering Committee, a caucus of conservative senators. Senator Lee will assume the post at the start of the 114th Congress in January. Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) served as chairman for the past two years. Mike Lee is a knowledgeable and principled movement conservative, and he has done a terrific job as vice chairman of the Steering Committee this Congress, said Sen. Toomey. I’m pleased to hand the gavel to him. I look forward to continuing to work with Mike, and my colleagues, to advance innovative conservative ideas that help create jobs and grow the economy. I am honored by the opportunity to chair the Senate Steering Committee, said Sen. Lee. Senator Toomey has been a courageous and principled leader and I hope to maintain the standard he has set. The Senate Steering Committee will continue to develop and promote conservative solutions and facilitate vigorous discussion and debate on the issues that matter most to the country. I look forward to leading this effort and very much appreciate the support of my colleagues. Established in 1974, the Steering Committee provides a forum where senators can work together to discuss and promote conservative legislation and policies. Past Senate Steering Committee chairmen include Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), Phil Gramm (R-Texas), Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) and Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.)
