Congressman Scott is in his fifth term as the U.S. Representative for Georgia’s Eighth Congressional District. Prior to his election to Congress in 2010, Rep. Scott was a small business owner and spent 14 years in the Georgia State House, beginning with his first election at age 26.

Austin, who graduated from the University of Georgia with a B.B.A. in Risk Management and Insurance, owned and operated an insurance brokerage firm for nearly twenty years. He has his Series 7, CLU, CHFC, RHU and REBC and, until his election to Congress, he had been a long-time member of NAIFA.

He is known as a conservative on both economic and social issues and as a fierce defender of our rural communities, limited government, and a strong national defense.

Rep. Scott’s political experience on the state level and background in risk management have given him a unique perspective in Washington. He utilizes that understanding to draft and promote legislation which works to open access to capital for American businesses, eliminate burdensome regulations on entrepreneurs and investors, and provide economic opportunities for the next generation.

Congressman Scott serves as the Ranking Member of the House Agriculture Committee’s Subcommittee on Commodity Exchanges, Energy and Credit, and he also sits on the Subcommittee on General Farm Commodities and Risk Management. Additionally, he is an active member of the House Armed Services Committee, where he serves on the Subcommittee on Readiness and the Subcommittee on Intelligence, Emerging Threats and Capabilities.

Rep. Scott and his wife Vivien reside in Tifton, Georgia with their three children Wells, Gabriela, and John Philip.
