Bio

U.S. Representative Ed Royce serves California's 39th Congressional District, which encompasses parts of Orange, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino Counties.

Royce's priorities in Congress are- addressing our national debt, protecting our homeland, eliminating pork-barrel spending, fighting crime and supporting victims of crime, strengthening education for all students, spurring job creation and strengthening Social Security and Medicare.

Royce has a strong history of public service. He authored the nation's first anti-stalker law as a California State Senator and versions of his bill have been adopted in all 50 states. He was also the legislative author and campaign co-chairman of California's Proposition 115, the Crime Victims/Speedy Trial Initiative, approved by the voters in 1990. In Congress, Royce continues his fight for victims' rights. He wrote and passed the Interstate Stalking Punishment and Prevention Act in 1996. This law makes it a federal crime to pursue a victim across state lines and enables law enforcement to intervene before violence occurs. Royce was active in passing AMBER Alert legislation in 2003, and legislation in 2004 to enhance rights for victims of crime.

For the 114th Congress, Royce was selected to be Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and he has held that position since January 2013. Royce is one of our nation's premier representatives to foreign governments around the world, and is a strong advocate of a foreign policy that keeps the American homeland safe. Immediately prior to becoming Chairman of the Committee, Royce served as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade and a member of the Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific. For more information on his work on the Foreign Affairs Committee.

As a senior member of the House Financial Services Committee, Royce sits on two Subcommittees- Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises and Housing and Insurance. Royce has served on the conference committees for some of the most significant legislation in the financial services arena and voted against bailing out Wall Street with taxpayer money in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. Royce is a leading proponent of comprehensive housing finance reform to reduce the government's presence in housing markets and was the author of legislation that capped CEO compensation at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Royce has consistently earned honors and awards from the National Taxpayers Union, Citizens Against Government Waste, National Federation of Independent Businesses, Watchdogs of the Treasury, Americans for Tax Reform, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, United Seniors Association, 60 Plus, American Share Holders Association, Citizens for a Sound Economy and the Small Business Survival Committee. The Washington Post recently named him one of the Most Effective Lawmakers in the U.S. Congress.

A California native, Royce is a graduate of the California State University, Fullerton, School of Business Administration. Prior to entering public service, his professional background includes experience as a small business owner, a controller, a capital projects manager, and a corporate tax manager for a Southern California company. Royce and his wife Marie have been married for 30 years and are longtime residents of Fullerton.
