Issue One is excited to welcome former Republican Ohio Congresswoman Deborah Pryce to the ReFormers Caucus. Congresswoman Pryce joins more than 150 fellow ReFormers in the fight to reduce the power of money in politics and and fix the broken political system.
Congresswoman Pryce represented the 15th district of Ohio from 1993 to 2009. While in office, she was a member of the Rules Committee. In the House, she was committed to children and health care issues, and authored several bills including the Child Abuse Prevention and Enforcement Act, and the Afghan Women and Children Relief Act. Pryce was also a leading advocate to increase federal funds for cancer research.
She was the Republican Conference Chair from 2003 to 2007, making her the highest ranking Republican woman in House history. She also held the positions of freshman class president and deputy whip.
Congresswoman Pryce has always been concerned with the influence that money has in government. She co-sponsored a bill to restrict lobbyist gifts, slow the revolving door and enhance lobbying disclosure. The congresswoman also voted yes on banning soft money donations to national political parties.
Deborah Pryce brings decades of experience and proven leadership to the ReFormers Caucus.
