Congressman Bradley Byrne was sworn in Tuesday for his first full term representing the 1st Congressional District of Alabama in the U.S. House of Representatives, according to a press release from Byrne’s office.

In the 114th Congress, Byrne will continue serving on the House Committee on Armed Services, House Committee on Education and the Workforce, and House Committee on Natural Resources. Byrne will continue to gain seniority on each of the committees.

“I am excited to begin my first full term in Congress, and I am ready to get down to business on behalf of the people of southwest Alabama,” Byrne said. “With the largest Republican majority in the House since Herbert Hoover’s presidency and Republicans now controlling the Senate, I am confident we can push forward with conservative reforms that empower Americans to grow and succeed.

“I believe these committee assignments give me the best opportunity to advocate on the issues that matter most to South Alabama. On the Armed Services Committee, I will continue to stand up for our men and women in uniform and fight to keep the jobs at the Austal shipyard in Mobile.

“The Education and the Workforce Committee allows me to work on reducing the role of the federal government in education policy and support our district’s institutions of higher education. I will also be able to continue the push for a solution to our shortened Red Snapper season from my position on the Natural Resources Committee.

“The next two years present a great opportunity to solve many great challenges facing our nation, and I am committed to advancing commonsense solutions.”

Byrne will continue to operate two offices in Alabama, in addition to his office in Washington. The two district offices are located in Mobile (11 N. Water St., Suite 15290) and Summerdale (502 W. Lee Ave.). Constituents can also visit Byrne’s digital office at
