WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-AL) today was sworn-in to her fifth term serving Alabama’s Second District in the U.S. House of Representatives, taking the oath:

“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

As the 116th Congress begins, Representative Roby pledged to continue prioritizing the issues that are most important to Alabama’s Second District, including properly funding our nation’s military, caring for veterans, fighting for farmers, cracking down on illegal immigration, and defending the unborn.

“I am honored and deeply humbled to represent Alabama’s Second District in Congress and serve as a voice for our shared conservative priorities,” Representative Roby said. “With every vote I cast, my guiding principle is that Alabama always comes first. From supporting Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base and Fort Rucker to improving veterans’ health care and advancing smart agriculture policy, I will continue to fight for the issues that impact Alabamians.”

Representative Roby most recently served on the Appropriations Committee and the Judiciary Committee. Committee assignments for the 116th Congress have not yet been made.
