Biography

Diane Black has an extensive record of standing for Life in Tennessee and now the U.S. House of Representatives.

Diane, who began her career as an emergency room nurse, was first elected to the Tennessee state senate in 2004 where she was a pro-life champion. Diane’s legislative accomplishments include reforming the state’s adoption laws, defunding Planned Parenthood and enacting stricter penalties for sex offenders, including bringing Tennessee into line with the federal “Adam Walsh Act.” Black was instrumental in passing a bill providing more options for long term health care for seniors and the disabled, as well as tort reform legislation, aimed at weeding out meritless medical malpractice lawsuits.

She also worked in the Tennessee State Senate to opt-out of taxpayer-funded abortion from health care “reform.” She fought to de-fund Planned Parenthood in Tennessee and co-sponsored the Freedom from Coercion Act, which fines abortion “clinics” that do not post signs stating Tennessee’s law against forced abortions.

Since coming to Washington, D.C., Congressman Black has joined the House Pro-life Caucus; the Pro-life Women’s Caucus and has a 100% pro-life voting record with National Right to Life. Rep. Black co-wrote the enrollment correction language that would have defunded Planned Parenthood for the rest of the fiscal year during the 2011 budget battle. She also co-sponsored and voted in favor of H.R. 3, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.

Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Black and her husband of 30 years, Dr. David Black have three grown children and six grandchildren. They moved to Tennessee 25 years ago and currently live in Gallatin. They attend Community Church in Hendersonville.

Prior

The United States House of Representatives Republican Policy Committee (RPC) was first established in 1949. Representative Luke Messer of Indiana was elected by House Republicans during the 114th Congress to serve as the 17th Chairman of the Committee and is the fifth ranking member of House Republican leadership. The RPC serves as an advisory Committee to House Republicans and provides a forum for Republican Members to discuss legislative proposals before the House. The Committee reports its findings and suggestions for consideration to the Republican Conference. The RPC meets on a bi-weekly basis when the House is in session and on an ad-hoc basis, as appropriate, to discuss legislation before the House. In 1946, the Joint Committee on the Organization of Congress made recommendations for restructuring Congress, which included the creation of a policy committee in both the House & Senate to “serve as a formal council to meet regularly with the Executive, to facilitate the formulation and carrying out of national policy, and to improve relationships.” The House Republican Policy Committee was then established by Conference Resolution on January 26, 1949.
