Jacqueline Smith, one of the state’s most active tea party organizers, is exploring a run against Bishop and plans to decide in the next week or two if she will jump in the race. “He has been a very popular representative for the past decade but recently some of his votes have been anti-liberty,” said Smith, from Wanship, in Summit County.

Rep. Bishop Selected as Member of Military Funding Conference

Rob Bishop (R-UT) to serve as a lead member of the Conference Committee assigned to negotiate a final version of National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Ryan said in a statement, “This legislation gives our military the tools and the funding it needs to do its job and keep America safe.”   As a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, Rep.

Bishop Applauds Hill Air Force Base’s F-35A Combat Wings
The commander of Air Combat Command, General Herbert J. Carlisle has approved the Air Force’s F-35A Lightning II for “Initial Operating Capability” (IOC). This new status qualifies the 388th and 419th Fighter Wings of Utah’s Hill Air Force Base as the first operational F-35A Combat Wings in the Air Force.  As a senior member of the House Committee on Armed Services, Rep. Rob Bishop (UT-01) has repeatedly touted the benefits of Hill Air Force Base as an appropriate home for this fifth generation fighter aircraft. Following the IOC declaration, Rep. Bishop offered the following statement: “Talk to any war fighter who flies the F-35, and they’ll tell you it’s a game changer. This means America and her allies will continue to have air superiority. When we send men and women into battle, we don’t want it to be a fair fight, and this gives us the advantage. The commitment that Washington must make now is to build the number of planes needed, and to do it quickly.&n

Included in the bill is a revamped 1.4 million acre plan for the Bears Ears region. A partner bill was also introduced to complement the Utah Public Lands Initiative by ensuring land use certainty in seven Utah counties. Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) will sponsor the companion legislation in the Senate.   After introducing the PLI legislation, Rep. Bishop released following statement: “The effort of PLI was always to solve problems that have led to acrimony, and to do so by conserving lands worthy of conservation and providing for economic and recreational opportunities for all Utahns. The status quo does not provide that. It’s not that the federal government is malicious, but when they own one third of America, it is just too much to effectively manage from Washington.
