Westerman Sworn Into 115th Congress
WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) released the following statement after being sworn in Tuesday (January 3) for his second term as congressman from the Fourth Congressional District of Arkansas:
“It is a great honor and privilege to serve the hardworking taxpayers of the Fourth Congressional District,” Westerman said. “As we start the 115th Congress, I will continue the fight to undo President Obama’s executive overreach. I will work with President-elect Donald Trump and my colleagues in Congress to restore Constitutional authority granted to the legislative branch, to simplify our tax code, and to repeal Obamacare once and for all. The next two years will be full of action as I join my colleagues in executing the mandate the American people delivered on November 8th."
The official swearing in at noon in the House chamber will be followed by a ceremonial swearing in with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan in the Rayburn Room of the U.S. Capitol. Westerman was joined for the ceremony by his oldest son, Eli.
An open house is set to be held Tuesday afternoon at Westerman's Washington office for constituents to have a chance to visit with Westerman and the Fourth District staff.
