Bio

Keith Rothfus is passionate about ensuring that America remains the land of opportunity and freedom that the Founders intended it to be. He was sworn in on January 3, 2017 and is serving his third term in the United States House of Representatives. Keith was appointed to serve as Vice Chairman of the Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit for the 115th Congress. In this new role, he is working to help grow the economy by ensuring small businesses, entrepreneurs, and consumers have access to the credit they need. Keith also serves on the Subcommittee on Housing and Insurance and the Subcommittee on Terrorism and Illicit Finance. As a member of the Financial Services Committee, Keith addresses issues concerning the banking system, housing, insurance, and securities markets. The committee also has jurisdiction over monetary policy, international finance, international monetary organizations, and efforts to combat terrorism financing. The committee oversees the Federal Reserve Board and individual reserve banks, the Treasury, the production and distribution of currency, and the Nation's capital markets. Keith's Financial Services work enables him to promote policies for a competitive economy that will result in more jobs and better wages. Keith represents Pennsylvania's Twelfth Congressional District, which includes all of Beaver County and portions of Allegheny, Cambria, Lawrence, Somerset, and Westmoreland Counties in Western Pennsylvania.

The Twelfth Congressional District is the home to diverse industries such as manufacturing, energy, financial services, education, and health care. Keith is fighting to reduce federal regulations and promote free enterprise so that each of these industries can grow at a healthier pace and create jobs.

He also promotes these principles through his work on the Republican Policy Committee Budget Taskforce.

Keith graduated from the State University of New York College at Buffalo with a bachelor of science degree and earned his law degree at the University of Notre Dame.

He spent most of his professional life in the private sector. As an attorney, he helped businesses of all sizes expand and create jobs in Western Pennsylvania.

Keith served as the first director of the Center for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). He launched and managed DHS's efforts to coordinate relief services with faith-based and community organizations after natural disasters.

He has served on the Board of Directors of the Veterans Leadership Program of Western Pennsylvania, an organization that provides support services to local veterans and their families.

Keith and his wife Elsie are raising their family in Allegheny County.
