Shelley serves on the Appropriations Committee, the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, the Environment and Public Works Committee and the Rules and Administration Committee.
Shelley believes that the challenges of our day demand bipartisan solutions and cooperation across the aisle to advance legislation that benefits West Virginia and the country as a whole. A lifelong West Virginian, Shelley was born in Glen Dale in the Northern Panhandle. She holds a B.S. in Zoology from Duke University and a M.Ed. from the University of Virginia.

Sen. Boozman, a successful businessman and life-long resident of Arkansas, was sworn-in as U.S. Senator in 2011. John serves on five committees and chairs two subcommittees: Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, Appropriations, Environment and Public Works (EPW), Rules, and Veterans' Affairs. He is also Co-Chair of the Senate Paper & Packaging Caucus.
Along with these committees, John serves on the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, commonly referred to as the Helsinki Commission, and the Congressional Study Group on Europe (CSGE), a bipartisan organization dedicated to frank and candid dialogue between American lawmakers and their peers in European capitals and Brussels. He also serves as one of six Congressional Regents on the Smithsonian Institute's Board of Regents.
Prior to serving in the Senate, John represented the people of the Third District of Arkansas in the U.S. House of Representatives for five terms where he established a reputation as an advocate for Arkansas, especially their state’s veterans for whom he passed legislation to improve the transition to civilian life, expand treatments for our wounded warriors and modern educational benefits under the GI Bill.
Reid is a leader in the push for a more functional and accountable government through a return to regular order. Reid owned and operated his family's small business for over 30 years, so he knows the importance of a balanced budget. With that experience, he is working in Congress to get our fiscal house back in order with responsible spending priorities and long-term budgeting that will give families and businesses the certainty they need.
Reid has fought to bring common sense back to government through his legislative work, and will continue to do so through his seats on the Transportation and Infrastructure and Foreign Affairs committees.
He is also Co-Chair of the House Paper & Packaging Caucus.
Reid has authored the Biennial Budgeting and Enhanced Oversight Act to make Congress budget smarter, and has introduced constitutional amendments requiring a balanced budget and mandating term limits.
In his capacity as the vice president of government relations, Mr. Trauger serves as the senior lobbyist for the NAM before Congress and the Administration. Prior to this role, he served as the vice president of human resources policy at the NAM for more than five years, where he acted as the principal lobbyist and policy expert on health care, labor, workforce and immigration issues.
Prior to joining the NAM, Mr. Trauger operated his own consulting practice—Joe Trauger (JT) Consulting—which specialized in health care issues. He also worked at the Healthcare Distribution Management Association, where he managed the federal lobbying team and political program, and previously served as senior vice president for The Federalist Group, where he managed the health care practice for the firm.
Mr. Trauger has more than 10 years of experience on Capitol Hill. He served for a U.S. senator and several representatives, including nearly four years in House leadership as the principal health adviser in the majority leader and majority whip offices. He also worked with the House Energy and Commerce Committee, House Ways and Means Committee, House Education and the Workforce Committee, Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee and Senate Finance Committee. He has effectively worked for associations and corporations with varying business and political needs and has successfully secured introduction of bipartisan legislation, developed amendment strategies, built coalitions and directed fundraising efforts on behalf of his clients and employers. Mr. Trauger earned his B.A. in political science from Minnesota State University – Mankato.
