WASHINGTON—Congressman Rob Bishop (UT-01) was sworn into the House of Representatives for the 112th Congress today by Speaker of the House John Boehner (OH-08). Today’s swearing in ceremony will mark the beginning of Bishop’s fifth term as Congressman for Utah’s First Congressional District.
“It is an honor to continue serving as the Representative for Utah’s First Congressional District.
“For more than two years now, Utahns and Americans across the country have taken necessary steps to tighten their fiscal belts because it was the prudent and responsible course of action. Just as the American people have done, Congress must also follow suit and rein in the undisciplined and wasteful spending of hard-earned tax dollars.
“I am honored to be part of the historic 112th Congress and new Republican majority, and will endeavor to ensure that the priorities of Utahns and all Americans are addressed first and foremost. I will work with my fellow colleagues to promote policies that respect our constitutionally protected freedoms and that will enable hard-working Americans to flourish in a free enterprise based economy.
“I look forward to being a part of the efforts that will unleash America’s full potential and put our country back on track toward improved prosperity,” said Congressman Rob Bishop.
