WASHINGTON, DC – Republican Study Committee Chairman Kevin Hern (OK-01) announced today that Representative Joe Wilson (SC-02) will again chair the RSC’s National Security Task Force.
The RSC’s National Security Task Force leads RSC’s policies to ensure a strong national defense and a policy of peace through strength. In the 117th Congress, the Task Force sent dozens of oversight letters, issued multiple memorandums and policy papers, and successfully introduced over a dozen amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act. In the 116th Congress, the Task Force issued the RSC National Security Strategy, a comprehensive conservative report highlighting ways Congress could strengthen U.S. national security in confronting the threats of China, Russia and Iran.
“Joe Wilson has shown tremendous leadership leading the RSC National Security and Foreign Affairs Task Force,” said Chairman Hern. “Joe’s leadership of the Task Force has established the RSC as the intellectual leader on the Hill for conservative foreign policy solutions and ideas. I am confident in the 118th Congress, under Joe’s leadership, the Task Force will continue its record of success in standing up for a strong foreign policy of peace through strength.”
Rep. Wilson said, “I am grateful to Republican Study Committee Chairman Kevin Hern for appointing me to again chair the RSC’s National Security and Foreign Affairs Task Force.
“The Task Force achieved impactful accomplishments while Republicans were in the minority, and, with the 118th Congress and our new majority, I look forward to working with my colleagues to pass significant foreign policy legislation supporting peace through strength, while undermining our adversaries such as Russia, China, Iran and other aggressors.”
