Congressman Bryan Steil proudly serves the people of Southeast Wisconsin in Congress. Throughout Bryan’s first term in office, he has been available and accessible to Southeast Wisconsin and is fighting for families and workers. He has a history of private sector experience, public service, and community involvement. First elected to Congress in 2018, Bryan has been a steadfast advocate for Wisconsin values. In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Bryan has been working to protect the health of the vulnerable while also working to get our economy up and running. As our community was struggling under the mandated shutdowns, he made sure workers, small businesses, and farmers received support in the CARES Act. At the same time, he has fought against wasteful spending and introduced legislation to remove special interest spending from the bill. Additionally, Bryan worked with the White House Coronavirus Task Force and ensured Kenosha-based Jockey could produce thousands of PPE medical gowns per week for healthcare workers on the front lines. After holding numerous in-person town halls in 2019, in 2020 he remained available by holding numerous telephone town halls, reaching thousands of constituents, to keep the community informed and to listen to the thoughts of those here in Wisconsin. Bryan has fought for Wisconsin farmers and agriculture by successfully advocating for the passage of an enhanced trade deal with Canada and Mexico, the USMCA. He supports our veterans and focuses on ensuring they receive the care they have earned while improving access to mental health resources. Bryan worked with law enforcement in Southeast Wisconsin and is leading an effort in Congress to expose the financing of human trafficking. He also championed legislation to protect Wisconsinites, especially our seniors, from criminal robocalls and scams. Prior to his 2018 election, Bryan worked in the manufacturing sector for over a decade in Southeast Wisconsin where he saw firsthand how burdensome Washington regulations can stifle economic growth and hinder job creation. He was appointed by Gov. Walker to serve on the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents in 2016, where he oversaw 26 UW campuses and a $6 billion budget. Bryan voted to freeze tuition to ensure that students had access to high quality, affordable education. Bryan is a Janesville native, Craig High School, Georgetown University and University of Wisconsin graduate. He is a member of St. John Vianney Parish in Janesville.
