House Republicans to Launch 10th Amendment Task Force.

The Task Force will work to decentralize power from Washington and restore it to the states, local governments and individuals.  

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. John Culberson (TX-07) , Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chairman Tom Price (R-GA) and nine other co-founding Members will officially launch the newly formed 10th Amendment Task Force during an event on Thursday, May 6th.  In an effort to answer America’s call to change Washington, the Task Force will work to decentralize power from Washington and restore it to the states, local governments and individuals.

The Task Force, a project of the RSC, aims to usher in a “New Era of Federalism” and will work to ensure that the principles of the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution serve as a framework for Republicans to fundamentally alter the way government interacts with and affects citizens.

  1. Rob Bishop (UT-01)
