Majority Leader-Elect Steve Scalise: “For decades, the Republican Study Committee has been the House of Representatives’ conservative core, ensuring that conservatives have a seat at the table and their policies make it to the Floor. I’m incredibly honored to once again serve as an RSC steering member this Congress. As a former RSC chairman, I know that Congressman Hern will fight to get our country back on the right track and listen to the American people who have sent us to Congress to serve as the line of defense against President Biden’s radical socialist agenda and fight for our conservative agenda of stopping runaway spending, putting American energy first, standing up for our values, freedom from government, and safe communities.”
Rep. Mike Johnson: “For decades, RSC has served as the intellectual arsenal of conservatism in the House. At a time when our country faces crises on a multitude of fronts, implementing a conservative agenda and ensuring it gets across the finish line is critical. I’m proud to continue serving my colleagues through RSC.”
Rep. Jim Banks: “I look forward to serving with Chairman Hern and the RSC steering committee to push our conference toward legislation that balances the budget, secures our southern border and advocates for pro-family policies.”
Rep. Jeff Duncan: “The Republican Study Committee plays an essential role in preserving the conservative principles and American ideals I came to Congress to protect. With a slim Republican Majority this Congress, holding the line is more important now than ever, and the RSC will continue to lead the charge as we fight for rigorous oversight, demand answers for the American people, and deliver commonsense solutions to the crises Americans are facing. As a member of the RSC Steering Committee, I will work to ensure the RSC continues to lead effectively, develop conservative policy, and defend America-First policies, the American Dream, and the Constitution.”

Rep. Brad Wenstrup: "I am honored to be selected to continue serving on the Republican Study Committee Steering Committee. Republicans have worked hard to win back the Majority, and I am committed to working to undo the Democrats’ socialist agenda and moving forward as a country with the conservative ideas we know work: lower taxes, free-market health care options, a strong economy, secure borders, and a empowered military that can stand up for America in a dangerous world. It will be important for conservatives to have a leading voice in the new Republican Majority, and I look forward to working with RSC Chairman Kevin Hern to provide those conservative policy and ideas on behalf of the American people."

Rep. Byron Donalds: “For fifty years, the Republican Study Committee has been a leading Conservative voice in the halls of the U.S. House of Representatives. As we embark upon the 118th Congress with a newly won House Republican majority, I am honored to announce that I have been chosen as a member of the Republican Study Committee’s Steering Committee by RSC Chairman Kevin Hern (OK-01). I look forward to getting to work advancing our shared Conservative principles into legislation. There is much to be done.”
Rep. Andy Barr: “The Republican Study Committee is going to be on the frontlines of crafting a conservative vision to tackle the challenges our country is facing. I look forward to working with Chairman Hern, my fellow RSC Steering Committee members, and every member in the RSC during the 118th Congress.”
Rep. Rich McCormick: “I am honored to join the Steering Committee for the RSC, where we’ll be fighting for policies that spur economic growth, protect American families, and safeguard our traditional values. I am already working on legislation to cancel Joe Biden’s massive IRS expansion, stand up to Communist China, and secure our broken southern border. The new Republican majority is going to revive freedom and save America. Semper Fidelis!”
Rep. French Hill: “For eight years, I am proud to have been an active member of the House Republicans’ largest caucus, the Republican Study Committee. The RSC has been the persistent advocate for fiscal discipline and the engine for conservative policy ideas. I am delighted to join this year’s RSC Steering Committee under the leadership of Chair Kevin Hern of Oklahoma.”
Rep. Debbie Lesko: “I am honored to be able to continue to serve on the Republican Study Committee’s steering committee again this Congress. I will continue to work with my RSC colleagues to advance conservative, common sense principles and policies that will secure our nation, safeguard American families, and restore economic prosperity to our great nation!”
Rep. Diana Harshbarger:
“We have a responsibility in the 118th Congress to undo the damage that Democrat one-party rule inflicted on our communities. I am proud to be a member of the RSC Steering Committee to help unite the Republican party in the House on policy that strengthens our national security, boosts our economy, reduces the size of the federal government, and brings common sense back to Washington.”
Rep. August Pfluger:
“I am honored to work alongside Congressman Hern in leading my colleagues as a steering member of the Republican Study Committee. With our new Republican majority, we have a unique opportunity to advance productive, conservative policies that move our nation forward. I look forward to championing a new course on fiscal responsibility, strong national security, and government accountability.”
Rep. Greg Steube: “I’m honored to serve on the Republican Study Committee’s Steering Committee for the 118th Congress. This committee will continue to defend the conservative agenda as we implement initiatives that will get America back on track after two disastrous years of single party Democrat rule. As Republicans, we must stand firmly for border security, fiscal responsibility, family values, and our cherished freedoms. Under Representative Hern’s leadership, I know we will deliver these results in the 118th Congress for our fellow Americans.”
Rep. Ben Cline: “As a member of the Republican Study Committee, I am honored to be selected to the RSC Steering Committee for the 118th Congress.

Tom Tiffany: “We have a lot of work to do to restore America to a strong, safe, and free nation, and I look forward to working with my Republican Study Committee colleagues to shape a bold, conservative agenda for the 118th Congress. Together, I know the RSC will fix problems and deliver results to the American people.”
Rep. Harriet Hageman: "I'm excited to be a member of the RSC and honored to serve on its steering committee. The ideals of limited government, personal freedom, taking away power from unelected bureaucrats, and reclaiming Congress’s rightful lawmaking authority have long been at the core of my beliefs. I will be diligent in working with fellow RSC members in support of these beliefs."
Rep. Laurel Lee:
“I am honored to become a member of the Republican Study Committee to promote conservative solutions in the 118th Congress. I look forward to working with my colleagues to strengthen our economy, promote job growth, limit government overreach, and bolster our national security.”
