Bio

He also sits on the bicameral Joint Economic Committee, serving as the Senior House Republican Member, Co-Chairs the Valley Fever Task force with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, is the Republican Co-Chair of the Blockchain Caucus, Co-Chair of the Tunisia Caucus, and Co-Chair of the Tele Health Caucus. Among his legislative accomplishments, David was instrumental in authoring and passing H.R. 1. the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which reformed an outdated tax code resulting in incredible economic growth, millions of jobs being created, 50-year record low unemployment, and increased revenues. David also played a key role in advancing the United States, Mexico, Canada Agreement (USMCA) as a Member of the Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee and USMCA Whip Team, working across the aisle to garner support. This 21st Century trade deal supports over 228,000 jobs, improves Arizona's cross-border trade relationships, and updates our intellectual property laws. During the 115th and 116th Congress, David helped advance several healthcare proposals designed to give patients the choice, affordability, and quality they deserve. His work as co-chair of the Telehealth Caucus proved pivotal in passing flexibilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. He is also an advocate of H.R. 19, the Lower Costs, More Cures Act, legislation compromised of bipartisan solutions designed to lower out of pocked spending, encourage innovation, improve transparency, and foster competition. David continues to advocate for permanently removing barriers to telehealth, developing a Federal Invisible Risk Sharing Program, and providing patients with the most affordable care. David has always been a leader in the financial services space, previously serving on the House Financial Services Committee. During the 116th Congress, David re-introduced The Fair Investment Opportunities for Professional Experts Act, legislation he wrote to expand the definition of an "accredited investor" allowing for a larger number of individual investors to enter the market place and be considered for growth opportunities. In August 2020, the Securities and Exchange Commission voted to modernize the definition of an accredited investor, incorporating many of the change's from David's legislation. A national leader on tribal policy, David draws on a unique background working with Arizona's tribal communities on important priorities. As a strong advocate for efficiencies in the 21st Century economy, David collaborates with entrepreneurs and innovators in Arizona and around the world on ways to increase trade and drive economic growth. David has long championed technological innovations as the solution to the problems of over-burdensome government regulations.

David holds a seat on the Tax and Health Policy Subcommittees on the House Ways and Means Committee, where he is able to use his expertise in tax and health policy to lend his voice towards pressing issues such as meaningful tax reform and crashing the price of health care.

David Schweikert has always been committed to public service and he has an impressive record as an effective reformer and problem solver.

By the age of 30 years old, David was serving as the Majority Whip in the Arizona state legislature. There, he Chaired the Indian Affairs Committee and rolled up his sleeves working on the state budget, healthcare system, and passed landmark tax reform and second amendment legislation.

Over the years, Arizona's governors have appointed David to numerous posts. He served as Chair of the state's tax court and helped negotiate Arizona federal compact with tribal communities.

After being out of public life for 14 years building a successful Arizona business, David was called to serve as Treasurer of Maricopa County. One of the largest counties in the country, David has been heralded for his pragmatic decision making leading up to the fiscal crisis. Maricopa County increased revenue at a time when municipalities all around the country were going deep into the red.

Whether serving in elected office, or running a successful Arizona-based family real estate business with his wife Joyce, David Schweikert has been an integral voice in shaping Arizona's healthy and growing economy. As a Member of Congress, David works to remove government barriers to innovation and free enterprise. He is a budget hawk and is continuously fighting for solutions to curb federal spending and reduce American debt.

David and his wife Joyce enjoy backpacking. They host overnight hikes down the Grand Canyon, and are constantly spending time outdoors with their daughter.
