Conservatives Form House Freedom Caucus
Conservative House Members announced on Monday the formation of the House Freedom Caucus (HFC), which will focus on advancing an agenda of limited, constitutional government. Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) is a founding Member of the new caucus. The HFC has adopted the following mission statement:
The House Freedom Caucus gives a voice to countless Americans who feel that Washington does not represent them. We support open, accountable and limited government, the Constitution and the rule of law, and policies that promote the liberty, safety, and prosperity of all Americans.
“The HFC will work to provide a unified conservative voice in the House Republican Conference. I look forward to working with leadership to make the concerns of conservatives known as we work together to advance a pro-growth, limited government agenda in the House,” Congressman Mark Meadows said.
The HFC's founding members are Rep. Scott Garrett (R-NJ), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Rep. John Fleming (R-LA), Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ), Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-ID), Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC), Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC).
