Rep. Kevin Brady
U.S. Representative - Texas, District 8
Chair, Joint Economic Committee
A champion of free enterprise and American-made energy, Kevin’s focus is creating jobs, reducing Washington spending and sunsetting obsolete federal agencies.
As the lead House member of the Joint Economic Committee, Kevin has been a GOP leader on economic issues – opposing the President’s stimulus and fighting White House efforts to raise taxes on families, small businesses and American energy producers.
Until 2013, Kevin was the leader of the Trade Subcommittee and led the successful effort to pass new sales agreements with Panama, South Korea and Colombia – and he served as the White House point man on the successful passage of the Central American Free Trade Agreement. On the Social Security Subcommittee, Kevin fought to preserve this important program for future generations once and for all.
Prior to his election to Congress, Kevin worked as a chamber of commerce executive for 18 years and served six years in the Texas House of Representatives where he was named one of the Ten Best Legislators for Families & Children. In 1994 he was named one of Five Outstanding Young Texans.
