Representative Diane Black was elected in 2010 to represent Tennessee’s 6th Congressional District. In Congress her work focuses on budgetary issues, health care reform, and pro-life issues. Representative Black serves on the Ways and Means Committee and the Budget Committee, where she has introduced legislation that would reform the budget process and give federal budgets the force of law—ensuring that spending levels set by Congress are followed each year. Upon coming to Congress, Representative Black was elected by her fellow freshmen Members of Congress to serve as the Freshman Class Representative to the Republican Policy Committee, a forum where Republicans can discuss and forward their legislative initiatives. Prior to serving in Congress, Representative Black worked in the health care field for many years as a nurse, learning first-hand of the challenges facing our health care system, and was also a small business owner and an educator.
