Biography

Michael J. “Mike” Rogers (born June 2, 1963) is the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._House_of_Representatives">U.S. Representative for http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michigan%27s_8th_congressional_district">Michigan’s 8th congressional district, serving since 2001. He is a member of the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republican_Party_(United_States)">Republican Party and Chairman of the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_House_Permanent_Select_Committee_on_Intelligence">Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

Mike’s leadership positions, experience and legislative record enable him to effectively advocate for the citizens of Michigan’s Eighth Congressional District and work to make America a better place.

In 2011, Mike was appointed as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and is a national leader on national security policy.  In the 112th Congress, he authored three bipartisan intelligence authorization bills which were signed into law, and wrote the leading cyber security bill to protect American innovation and the jobs that come with it from cyber predators.  Mike believes that national security issues should be bipartisan or even nonpartisan.  Washington Post columnist David Ignatius wrote that the Intelligence Committee Mike chairs was “a rare example of bipartisanship.”

As a member of the powerful Energy and Commerce panel, Mike works to strengthen Michigan’s economy.  He has been a leader in efforts to adopt an “all of the above” energy policy to end America’s dangerous dependence on foreign oil, create jobs, crack down on wasteful spending and repeal the new health care law, including sponsoring a bill that would allow everyone who wants to opt out of the law to do so.

During his time in Congress, Mike has written several bipartisan measures which were signed into law, including legislation to: make education savings accounts tax free at the federal level; support families of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty; protect America from biological or chemical attacks; expand research into chronic pain; combat counterfeit prescription drugs; protect military funerals; improve the efficiency of computer servers; and hire more “trade enforcement cops” to crack down on the illegal trading practices of countries like China.  In the 112th Congress, Mike has also authored bipartisan measures to strengthen pediatric drug research and make medical devices safer for children.

A 1985 graduate of Adrian College, Mike was a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army through the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps at the University of Michigan, then served as an FBI special agent before being elected to the Michigan Senate in 1995.  Mike has served Michigan’s Eighth Congressional District in Congress since 2001.

Mike is married, has a daughter and a son and is a regular face on national television and in print.
