Ferguson sworn in for second term

U.S. Representative Drew Ferguson, R-Georgia was sworn in Thursday for a second term in Georgia’s Third District in the House of Representatives.  He said he was honored to once again serve the people in the district.

“We made so much progress in the 115th Congress to spur economic growth and get government out of the way of Main Street job creators,” he said in a news release. “From the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act to common sense regulatory reform, our pro-growth policies gave Americans more opportunities to succeed in the global economy.

“As this new Congress begins, I remain committed to protecting these advances and ensuring our nation continues to move forward so that everyone has the opportunity to seize the American dream.”

Ferguson is currently the Republican chief deputy whip and serves on the Budget, Transportation and Infrastructure and Education and Workforce Committees.
