Congressman Bilbray is a Nevada native, and prior to being elected to the United States House of Representatives in 1987, he was a Nevada State Senator. During his four terms in the United States Congress, he was Chairman of the Small Business Subcommittee on Taxation, Tourism and Procurement where he fought to promote and protect the economic interests of hardworking Americans.
