Congressman Mike Flood (NE-01), the newest Member of Congress, was sworn in to the House of Representatives today. Before coming to Congress, Rep. Flood served many of the same constituents that he now represents in the House as a member of the Nebraska State Legislature, where he at one point in time served as Speaker.
As a former businessman who owned several radio and television stations, Rep. Flood understands how burdensome regulatory red tape has held back many of our country’s small businesses, and he has made creating a better business environment one of his top priorities in Congress.
House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy issued the following statement after Congressman Flood’s swearing-in:
“In the time I’ve gotten to know Mike, I’ve learned that he stands for strong conservative values and he has a dedicated conviction in the right to life. I am looking forward to working with Mike on the issues impacting the constituents of our districts and Americans across the country. This is a great day for the people of Nebraska’s 1st Congressional District, who will once again have a Representative who will fight for them here in Congress.”
