WASHINGTON, DC – The American Council for Capital Formation proudly announces that former Representative Bill Flores (R-TX) has joined its bipartisan board of advisors.
Bill Flores served five terms in the U.S. House of Representatives and was the first Republican to represent Waco, Texas since Reconstruction. During his time in Congress, he served on important House committees including the Committee on Energy and Commerce, the House Budget Committee, the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, and the House Natural Resources Committee. During the 114th Congress, Flores was elected by his House colleagues to serve as Chair of the Republican Study Committee, a caucus of conservative House Republican members and the largest caucus in Congress. Prior to his public service, Flores served as chief executive officer of Phoenix Exploration Company, an oil and natural gas exploration company.
“Bill Flores honorably served the constituents of 12 Texas counties, including the communities of Waco, Bryan/College Station, and portions of Austin for a decade,” said ACCF President and CEO Mark Bloomfield. “The combination of his institutional knowledge of Capitol Hill with his 20+ years of “C-level” executive experience in the oil and gas industry is invaluable in the coming policy debates over energy policy and broader economic issues. We are honored to have him as a member of our board of advisors.”
Over the last four decades, the ACCF Board of Advisors has demonstrated a historical commitment to bipartisanship and business leadership in public policy. It has included seven former Secretaries of Treasury, Secretaries of State, Defense, Homeland Security, four U.S. Special Trade Representatives, three former EPA Administrators, multiple ambassadors, and senior White House officials from President Trump and his six predecessors.
“During my time in Congress I found that ACCF plays an important role in our critical policy debates, particularly with their ability to bring together diverse ideological views together for civil discussions on some of the nation’s most pressing issues,” said Bill Flores. “I will always look fondly on my years as a member of Congress, including my participation in ACCF policy discussions, and I look forward to continuing to lend my voice and experience on the ACCF Board of Advisors.”
