District 3, Alabama

About

Mike Rogers is a sixth generation East Alabamian. He is a conservative, a Christian, the father of three and married to his wife, Beth, for over 35 years. Mike grew up in Calhoun County, Alabama, in the small mill village of Blue Mountain. His mother worked in the local textile mill and his father was a firefighter. Mike learned the values of family, hard work and sacrifice from his parents. Mike was a practicing attorney and is a small business owner in Calhoun County.

 

As a senior member of the Armed Services Committee, Mike was selected to serve as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Strategic Forces. The Subcommittee deals with missile defense and nuclear weapons issues. These are vital issues important to America’s national security and Alabama’s economy, especially now as our nation faces nuclear and ballistic missile threats from North Korea and Iran. Mike is an ardent proponent of our nation’s missile defense system to protect the United States and our key allies like Israel, and is consistently at odds with the Obama Administration over its positions on defense policy.

 

Mike Rogers also serves on the Committee on Homeland Security. In his effort to streamline the Department, Mike has been critical of the Transportation Security Administration’s intrusive screening methods, wasteful spending and failure to adopt a more risk-based approach. Mike has made securing our borders a key part of the Committee’s agenda and works continuously to help improve FEMA’s disaster response. Ensuring rural first responders are treated fairly by Washington is one of Mike’s top priorities, as is his strong advocacy for the Center for Domestic Preparedness located in Anniston, Alabama. Mike Rogers graduated from Saks High School and earned both his undergraduate degree in Political Science and Masters of Public Administration at Jacksonville State University (http://www.jsu.edu/). Later he graduated with honors from the Birmingham School of Law.
