WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 20, 2017) – U.S. Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Chair of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement after President Donald J. Trump was sworn into office.

“It’s an exciting time in our nation’s capital. An Inauguration is a time of new beginnings. It brings with it hope of a better tomorrow for everyone in this country. We cherish the peaceful transfer of power. Today means a fresh start and an opportunity to make a meaningful impact on people’s lives. We have new leadership and a unified Republican government. This moment is a call from the American people — it’s time to be legendary, to think big, and to reimagine government. It’s time to put the voice of every man, woman, and child in this country back where it belongs: at the core of our representative government.
