U.S. Congressman Rick W. Allen (R-Ga-12) issued the following statement today after the House of Representatives convened to officially mark the start of the first legislative session of the 116th Congress. Congressman Allen was sworn in this afternoon, beginning his third term as the Representative for Georgia’s 12th Congressional District.
“I am deeply humbled and grateful for the opportunity to continue representing the great people of Georgia’s 12th district in the People’s House,” said Congressman Allen. “We have many pressing issues before the 116th Congress, and I am hopeful that we can build upon some of the significant accomplishments we’ve made over the last two years working hand in hand with the Senate and Trump Administration. Under a new majority in the House, it is imperative that we set our differences aside, work together, and continue to put America first. I will remain a strong voice and will fight for Georgia-12 priorities and I am eager to see what the 116th Congress may bring.”
