WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL) today released the following statement after being sworn-in to a sixth term in the United States Senate:
“It is a tremendous honor and privilege to represent the people of Alabama for another six years in the United States Senate. In this next term, I am committed to continuing my record of service and working to ensure that Alabama’s interests are represented and protected in Washington.
“The 115th Congress presents a great opportunity for Alabamians and all Americans under the leadership of President-elect Trump and our Republican majorities in Congress. From filling the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court with a conservative voice to rolling back burdensome rules and regulations, I am confident that we will make much-needed progress for our country in the coming weeks, months, and years.”
