A couple of dominoes had to fall, but the U.S. House leadership shake-up did allow one Georgian to emerge with new prominence: U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall.
Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall issued the following statement regarding being selected as incoming Chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC), a group of the most conservative Members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall (R-GA-07) and U.S. Representative Tammy Duckworth (D-IL-08) introduced H.R. 4872, the “Ending Special Mail Privileges for Congress Act of 2014.” This bipartisan legislation repeals an antiquated federal law, known as the Franking privilege, that allows Members of Congress to use their signature in the corner of an envelope as postage and exempts Congress from the United States Postal Service’s (USPS) prepayment requirement.
