(Washington, DC) – United States Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) released the following statement after being named to the following United States Senate Committees for the 115th Congress: Finance; Commerce, Science, & Transportation; Banking, Housing, & Urban Affairs; and Veterans’ Affairs.
“As we begin this new Congress, I look forward to serving again on these important committees. My number one priority is to remain the leading voice on Capitol Hill for the people of Nevada. Whether it be reforming Obamacare, ensuring Nevada’s 300,000 veterans receive the care they deserve, or working in a bipartisan manner to implement major infrastructure projects, like Interstate 11, I am committed to being Nevada’s top advocate. As Nevada’s senior Senator, I look forward to partnering with this new Administration to advance our state’s causes in Washington,” said U.S. Senator Dean Heller.
Dean Heller was sworn in to the United States Senate on May 9, 2011. Prior to Heller's service in the Senate, he was the Representative for Nevada's Second Congressional District. Senator Heller has also served as Nevada's Secretary of State and in the Nevada State Assembly representing Carson City.
Since coming to Congress, Heller has fought for smaller government, the elimination of wasteful spending, and a balanced budget. He has been at the forefront of the fight for fiscal responsibility in Washington, voted against hundreds of billions in tax increases, and fought the expansion of government and out-of-control spending. Heller is also the only member of the Nevada delegation to vote against the Wall Street bailout. In addition, Heller has fought for fiscal policies that promote economic recovery and believes controlling government spending will create an environment where businesses can flourish and foster long-term economic growth.
