U.S. Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) on Thursday was sworn-in to her fifth term serving Alabama’s Second District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Roby pledged to continue prioritizing the issues that are most important to Alabama’s Second District, including properly funding the 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,” 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.”

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