Congressman Collins: “Speaker Ryan has committed to a more inclusive process”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Doug Collins issued the following statement on the election of Rep. Paul Ryan as the next Speaker of the House:

“Today, the House elected Rep. Paul Ryan to be the new Speaker of the House. He has promised to return the House to regular order, and I look forward to holding him accountable to that promise. As Speaker, Rep. Ryan has committed to a more inclusive process, one that will be open to all Republican ideas. He is a respected colleague, and won the vast majority of votes from the Republican side, including the support of the Georgia delegation. I look forward to working with him, and I know that his experience as Chairman of both the House Budget Committee, and the House Ways and Means Committee, will bring much needed fiscal discipline to the legislative body that controls the purse strings.”
