Newly elected Congressmember Mike Gallagher hopes to follow in the footsteps of his predecessor Reid Ribble and challenge the status quo on Capitol Hill. Rep. Gallagher was sworn into office earlier this week and has voiced his support for some of President-elect Trump’s plans to add term limits, enforce ethics reform, and limit the ability for former legislators to re-enter the system as lobbyists. The Green Bay Republican hopes to be part of a growing movement within Congress to cause change in areas people like Ribble fought for but could not accomplish during their time in office.
On Thursday night, Rep. Gallagher co-sponsored and approved a bill that would allow Congress to limit the ability for the executive branch to adopt major regulation changes of over $100 million.
