WASHINGTON, DC – Today, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced Congressman Bryan Steil (WI-01) will serve as a member of his transition team for the 118th Congress, established to ensure that the House of Representatives is ready to get to work for the American people on Day One. Steil’s work focuses on “Restoring the People’s House.” Under Speaker Pelosi, access to the U.S. Capitol for the general public was severely limited. One of Steil’s tasks will be to reopen the Capitol to the people it serves.
The teams are:
- Commitment to America Implementation, led by Republican Whip Steve Scalise
- Oversight and Accountability, led by Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Ranking Member James Comer and Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan
- Restoring the People’s House, led by Congressman Bryan Steil
Steil released the following statement following Leader McCarthy’s announcement:
“It’s past time that we re-open the People’s House. I’m committed to ensuring the House of Representatives is open and accessible to the people we are here to serve. I am eager to get to work with my colleagues on this team for a successful transition into the 118th Congress.”
Leader McCarthy released the following statement on the Transition Teams for the 118th Congress:
“The House Republican majority is getting right to work. These Transition Teams will ensure we hit the ground running on issues that Democrats have ignored or made worse for the American people under one-party rule, all while shutting out our fellow citizens from the People’s House.
The Commitment to America details our vision for the majority and we will move to put that into action on Day One. At the same time, our committees will be prepared to immediately start holding this Administration accountable for its incompetence and abuses of power. Finally, unlike the Democrat majority over the past two years, our Republican majority will restore the people’s voice inside the People’s House.
I want to thank each of these Members for their leadership and look forward to working with them over the days and weeks to come.”
