On May 23, the Joint Center, partnering with INSIGHT America, organized a breakfast with U.S. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).
The House Majority Leader is primarily tasked with scheduling legislation for floor consideration. This officer also plans the daily, weekly, and annual legislative agendas, and works to advance the goals of the majority party.
Before becoming House Majority Leader on August 1, 2014, McCarthy was elected to the House leadership as the Republican Chief Deputy Whip (2009 to 2011) and House Majority Whip (2011 until August 2014). He also represents California's 23rd Congressional District, which covers most of Kern and Tulare Counties, and northeastern Los Angeles County.
