Guest appointed to House Ethics Committee

Freshman Congressman Michael Guest will serve on the House Ethics Committee in Washington.

Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy announced Guest’s appointment as the only first-term Member of Congress to serve on the House Committee on Ethics in the 116th Congress.

“Congressman Guest’s legal acumen and understanding of the unbiased nature of law will suit him well as he begins his service on the Ethics Committee,” said McCarthy. “Members on the Ethics Committee are charged with guarding the institution of the House of Representatives. I know that Michael will be a strong advocate for members and staff alike.”

Congressman Guest said he believes this is an opportunity to serve his country.

“It’s my honor to serve the people of our nation by defending the integrity of this institution,” Guest said. “I am humbled that Leader McCarthy has placed his confidence and trust in me to serve on this necessary and distinguished committee.”

Guest’s predecessor, Congressman Gregg Harper also served as a member of the House Ethics Committee which oversees and administers travel, gift, financial disclosure, outside income, and other regulations along with advising members and staff, issue advisory opinions, and investigate potential ethics violations.
