InfoCongressman Denny Rehberg is a fifth generation Montana rancher with more than a quarter century of ranching and public service experience.

After beginning his life-long dedication to public service as an intern for the Montana State Senate, Denny joined the Washington D.C. staff of Montana Congressman Ron Marlenee as a legislative assistant. In 1982, Rehberg returned to Montana and the family business of ranching.

In 1984, Rehberg was again called to public service when his fellow Montanans elected him to the state House of Representatives. After serving three successful terms where he lead the effort to bring fiscal accountability to state government, balanced the budget and fought off attempts to raise taxes, Denny was appointed Lieutenant Governor by Governor Stan Stephens.

Following his appointed term, Rehberg joined the state-wide ticket with Attorney General and candidate for Governor Marc Racicot and was elected to his first full term as Montana's Lieutenant Governor in 1992.

As Lieutenant Governor, Denny worked to bring local control back to state government by traveling to all 56 counties every term - a practice he has maintained as Montana's Congressman. He chaired the Drought Advisory Committee, the Montana Rural Development Council, several health care initiatives and the task force credited with reforming Worker's Compensation.

A life long steward of the land, Denny managed the Rehberg Ranch near Billings prior to his election to Congress, where he oversaw a herd of 500 cattle and 600 cashmere goats.

In 2000, voters elected Denny Rehberg to Montana's lone seat in the House of Representatives, giving him one of the largest vote totals of the 2000 election. He currently serves on the House Committees on Agriculture, Resources, and Transportation and Infrastructure. In recognition of Montana's special resource needs, Denny was named Vice Chair of the Transportation Committee's Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment his freshman year.

Rehberg's first term in Congress has been marked by several significant victories for Montana families and business leaders. A recognized leader in agriculture issues, Rehberg authored and achieved passage of innovative value-added legislation that will help farmers and ranchers reach up the economic ladder to add value to their products. He supported President Bush's historic tax relief package that has already created 800,000 new jobs and was a leading proponent of sweeping education reforms designed to bring accountability and results to America's public school system.

In the wake of the terrible tragedies of September 11th, Congressman Rehberg has been an outspoken proponent of common sense reform. He has joined successful majorities in voting to re-build America's neglected military infrastructure, eliminate the failed INS agency in favor of a more accountable system and dramatically increase efforts to secure America's borders.

Congressman Rehberg's priorities for the future are clear: he wants to ensure American security at home and abroad, provide for a quality public education so that every child has the ability to achieve his or her fullest potential, and is committed to keeping America's promise to our senior citizens by preserving the Social Security and Medicare trust funds while offering a comprehensive prescription drug benefit to those most in need.

Denny Rehberg has been happily married to his high school sweetheart, Janice, for almost 25 years. Together they have three children, A.J. (18), Katie (14), and Elsie (4). A graduate of Washington State University, Rehberg attended Billings West High School and Montana State University
