“This was a very close freshman class,” said event organizer Congressman Dave Weldon, M.D.

“We came in on what the media described as a ‘bow wave’ in the election of ’94 and we gave ourselves 100 days to accomplish one of the most ambitious legislative reform packages of modern times.”

Following a brief reception, there will be a panel discussion moderated by Senator Roger Wicker. Panelists will include former Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Majority Whip Tom DeLay, Congressman Zach Wamp and Congresswoman Sue Myrick.
