Guest Tapped to Chair the Committee on Ethics


Washington, D.C. – Today, Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy announced that Congressman Michael Guest (MS-03) has been chosen to serve as Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Ethics.

“It’s necessary that the People’s House maintain the ethical standards of the people who elected us,” Congressman Guest said. “I’m honored to lead the committee that will maintain the level of integrity that the American people expect from their Representatives.”

“I’m proud to reappoint Michael Guest to the Ethics Committee. As Chair, he will work to maintain standards and restore the integrity of this institution. He will put the mission of the People’s House above all else and will help deliver transparency to the American people,” said Speaker Kevin McCarthy.

The Committee on Ethics is a bipartisan committee comprised of 10 total members — five Republicans and five Democrats. The committee provides mandatory ethics trainings for Members and those employed at the House of Representatives, investigates alleged violations of the House rules by Members, officers, and staff, and reviews financial disclosure statements filed by Members, candidates, senior staff, and shared staff.

Following the untimely passing of former-Ranking Member Jackie Walorski, Congressman Guest was appointed to serve as acting Ranking Member of the Committee on Ethics on August 19, 2022. He transitioned into the acting Chairman role when Republicans took control of the majority in the 118th Congress.
