Bio

Congressman Bill Huizenga (HIGH-zen-guh) represents Michigan's 4th Congressional District. This district stretches along the shores of Lake Michigan to Battle Creek to include all of Allegan and Van Buren Counties as well as portions of Berrien, Calhoun, Kalamazoo, and Ottawa Counties. Michigan's 4th Congressional District is home to beautiful beaches, a diverse array of agriculture, and a strong manufacturing base. Since January of 2017, Congressman Huizenga has been elected by his colleagues to serve as a Co-Chair of the Great Lakes Task Force. This bipartisan group fosters cooperation and support for policies and programs that enhance the environmental health of the Great Lakes while also ensuring the full economic potential of the Great Lakes region is realized. As a bipartisan leader on the Great Lakes, Huizenga has successfully rallied bipartisan support for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), a program that is vital to preserving and protecting the Great Lakes ecology while also promoting opportunities for the Great Lakes economy. The GLRI has had multiple success stories across Michigan and throughout the Great Lakes basin. Congressman Huizenga is also a founding member of the bipartisan PFAS Task Force. The goals of the Task Force include- educating members of Congress and the public about the potential impacts of PFAS; crafting bipartisan legislation to help communities recover from PFAS contamination, and working to determine the proper health and safety levels of PFAS. Bill believes residents in Southwest Michigan across the nation deserve to know the truth and the full picture about the health risks as well as the sources associated with PFAS and PFOAS. As a member of the House Financial Services Committee, Huizenga has focused on removing government-imposed barriers to private sector job creation and increasing transparency across the federal government. Because of his steadfast leadership, Congressman Huizenga previously served as the Ranking Member on the Investor Protection, Entrepreneurship, and Capital Markets Subcommittee. Congressman Huizenga has focused oversight efforts pertaining to the Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) operations, activities, and initiatives to ensure that it fulfills its congressional mandate to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation. This subcommittee also has jurisdiction pertaining to credit rating agencies, investment advisers, mutual funds, accounting standards, equity/option market structure, and fixed-income market structure. Rep. Huizenga recently served on the Housing, Community Development, and Insurance Subcommittee as well as the Monetary Policy and Trade Subcommittee where he focused on restoring accountability and transparency to the Federal Reserve. Huizenga's interest in public service began when he was a young boy. When the family was gathered around the dinner table, his father would encourage thoughtful discussions surrounding business and politics. Huizenga went on to attend Holland Christian High School, and later received his bachelor's degree in Political Science from Calvin College. After college, Bill began his career as a Realtor and entrepreneur. Today, Bill co-owns Huizenga Gravel Inc. located in Jenison, MI. Prior to serving Michigan's 4th Congressional District, Congressman Huizenga represented Michigan's Second Congressional District from January 2011 until January 2023. Congressman Huizenga is a lifelong resident of Ottawa County, where he currently resides with his wife and children.
