WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Congressman Robert Aderholt, released the following statement in regard to the announcement that Speaker Paul Ryan will retire from Congress at the conclusion of his current term.

“This morning, the Speaker met with the Republican Conference and announced that he would not seek another term in Congress.  Needless to say, it came as a bit of a surprise.  I think everyone in Congress, Democrat and Republican, will be sorry to see Paul leave, as he has been a fair Speaker to both the majority and the minority.  I’ve known Paul since he came to Congress and I appreciate his strong, moral character.  He will be missed in the halls of Congress.

“Paul Ryan’s term as Speaker will not go down as one of the longest, but it will certainly be one of the most impactful.  His leadership and passion for tax reform was one of the driving factors it became a reality in December.  It will be, without a doubt, a lasting legacy of the Ryan Speakership that will have positive returns for decades to come.

“There is still a lot of time left in this session of Congress and I look forward to working with Speaker Ryan over the next nine months to achieve our shared conservative goals.”
