Representing the 1st District of Utah
  • Bishop Introduces Bill to Honor Fallen Utah Soldier

    Rep. Rob Bishop (UT-01) introduced HR 7163, a bill to designate the outstation of the Department of Veterans Affairs in North Ogden, UT, as the Major Brent Taylor Vet Center Outstation. Brent Russell Taylor served as Mayor of North Ogden City and as a Major in the Utah Army National Guard. On Saturday, November 3rd, 2018, Major Taylor was killed in an attack in Afghanistan.
  • Ryan Selects Bishop to Negotiate Farm Bill

    The House-passed Farm Bill is good for Utah and good for America. As we enter into negotiations with the Senate, I will take particular care to defend and promote the provisions which support Utah’s farmers and ranchers. This bill is important to our nation’s economy and security. I look forward to serving on this bicameral, bipartisan committee.
  • Bishop Introduces Daylight Act

    For any student of federalism, this is a no-brainer. The range of industry and lifestyle is so varied across our country, it only makes sense for states to have the ability to set their watches the way they best see fit.
  • Bishop Tapped to Negotiate Defense Bill

    First and foremost, the NDAA is the legislation through which we in Congress ‘provide for the common defense.’ That is an important responsibility. This year’s NDAA will also reemphasize the important role Utah plays in the defense of our nation and our freedoms. Both the military and civilian workforce at Hill Air Force Base are vital to our country’s security. Ensuring Utah and the nation are properly supported is my top priority.
  • Bishop Hosts Utah Delegation Meeting

    As dean of Utah’s House delegation, Rep. Rob Bishop (UT-01) hosted the State’s full federal delegation as well as Governor Gary Herbert for a meeting to discuss a range of issues important to Utah. Topics included the Inland Port, Medicaid expansion, and ways the federal delegation may best work with the state.
  • Bishop Vote for Farm Bill is Good for Utah

    “This legislation strengthens America’s crucial agriculture industry. Utah farmers and ranchers are particularly empowered by provisions in this bill. From trade promotion to bolstered livestock programs, Utah will find many deserved benefits in the House version of the Farm Bill. I hope the Senate will honor Utah farmers in the same way.”
