Womack Statement on January 6th Commission

Washington, DC—May 19, 2021....Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released the below statement regarding today’s vote to establish a national commission to investigate the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol. He supported the bill:

“The American people deserve to know the truth behind the events of January 6th. Many unanswered questions remain—not the least of which are decisions out of the Speaker’s office regarding actionable intelligence apparently ignored prior to the event. We need those answers. I believe the structure, as designed by Representatives John Katko and Bennie Thompson, is fair, transparent, and affords no side an advantage. The insurrection was a black eye on America, and every effort must be made to ensure an event like this never happens again.”

Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011. He is a member of the House Appropriations Committee.
