The Republican Study Committee (RSC) is a congressional caucus with the purpose of advancing a conservative social and economic agenda in the U.S. House.

According to the official website, "The Republican Study Committee is dedicated to a limited and Constitutional role for the federal government, a strong national defense, the protection of individual and property rights, and the preservation of traditional family values. The group has played a major role in key policy areas including budget, appropriations, taxes, education, Social Security reform, defense, deregulation, and general government reform. The Republican Study Committee is an independent research arm for Republicans."[1]

History

The RSC was founded in 1973 by Rep. Phil Crane and others in the House of Representatives. It functioned as a Legislative Service Organization until those groups were abolished by new House rules in 1995. After the group was abolished, it restarted as the Conservative Action Team. In 2000, the CAT returned to its original name, the RSC, and has existed in that capacity since.[2]
