Georgia’s junior senator is in for another round, announcing his committee assignments for the 115th Congress.
Perdue issued a press release stating he will serve on the Armed Services, Banking, Agriculture, and Budget Committees.
“Georgia has a long tradition of representation on both the Senate Armed Services and Agriculture committees. I am humbled to carry on this legacy and will make it my priority to promote our Georgia values on these key committees,” Perdue said in the press release.
The Armed Services Committee is a new committee assignment for Perdue, meaning Perdue will help shape our national defense priorities and play an integral role in overseeing our military installations in Georgia and across the U.S.
“The very best of America serves in our armed forces. It is our responsibility to support our military and ensure our troops have the tools they need to protect our homeland and support our allies around the world. We must also look for ways to streamline operations at the Department of Defense so we can dedicate more of our resources to completing our military’s missions and preparing for future challenges,” Perdue continued.
Senator Perdue will work on the Banking Committee to roll back harmful regulations that are stifling economic growth and discouraging businesses from accessing capital and creating quality jobs.
“As a business guy, I’ve had to compete, create jobs, and make business decisions despite the onslaught of unintended consequences coming from Washington. Our current business environment is sucking the life out of our free enterprise system and preventing businesses from accessing capital. We need to dismantle the regulatory regime of Dodd-Frank, encourage entrepreneurial innovation, and unleash economic growth to get Americans working again.”
Perdue touts that he is the only member of Congress who is also a Fortune 500 CEO. He was elected in November 2014.
