Mike Rogers

Representative, U.S. House of Representatives

Mike RogersU.S. Representative Mike Rogers is the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, which is the House’s primary panel responsible for authorizing the funding for and overseeing the execution of the intelligence activities of the U.S. government.  Rogers is the kind of leader who believes that national security issues should be bipartisan or even, nonpartisan. In fact, a Washington Post columnist recently lauded Chairman Rogers’ leadership of the House Intelligence Committee as “A rare example of bipartisanship.”

Along with his ranking Democrat Dutch Ruppersberger, Rogers has worked to get three intelligence authorization bills signed into law with strong bipartisan support. Chairman Rogers has also taken the lead on the critical cybersecurity issue – getting an information sharing bill passed in the House with an overwhelming bipartisan vote.

Rogers was a commissioned officer in the United States Army, he continued to serve his country as an FBI special agent in Chicago where he fought organized crime and public corruption. After being elected to the Michigan Senate in 1995, Rogers was elected to Congress in 2000 and represents mid-Michigan’s 8th Congressional District.
