Yellow Pages Caucus
by Pete Sessions on February 10, 2012 at 5:01 PM
On Tuesday, I was proud to join my colleagues in launching the Yellow Pages Caucus with a press conference outside of the Capitol. Currently, the Federal government owns and operates hundreds of activities that are commercial in nature and are not inherent to government.
The Yellow Pages Caucus was formed by a group of Members of Congress dedicated to empowering the private sector. The Caucus believes that if an activity is available from a private company found in the Yellow Pages, it should either not be a responsibility of the federal government, or it should be performed by a private firm under contract with the federal government.
Members of the Yellow Pages Caucus are: Congresswoman Diane Black, Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, Congressman Bill Huizenga, Congressman Tom McClintock, Congressman John Duncan, Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins, Congressman Mike Coffman, Congressman Mo Brooks, Congressman Jeff Duncan, Congressman Richard Hanna, Congresswoman Nan Hayworth, Congressman Kevin Yoder and Congressman Todd Young.
I look forward to supporting legislative initiatives that meet the goals of this caucus, and will continue to update you on our action in Congress to fight for smaller government and a thriving free enterprise system.
