Washington, D.C. - The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) announced this week that Mr. Robert F. Dean of Houston has been selected as a recipient of the 2005 Ronald Reagan Republican Gold Medal.

U.S. Representative Tom Reynolds (R-NY), Chairman of the NRCC, stated, "Mr. Dean has long supported Republican ideals, like debt reduction and tax reform as they related to the growth and stability of small business in this country. I look forward to Mr. Dean's continued participation as a key member of the Committee and offer my congratulations on the award."

Those who are selected to receive the Ronald Reagan Republican Gold Medal are invited to participate in periodic strategy briefings to provide input on economic and tax issues, as well as how to build broad-based support for conservatives initiatives within the business community. Recipients are also permanently listed in the ranks of the Republican Honor Roll at the NRCC headquarters in Washington.

The NRCC is a political committee devoted to building a lasting Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The Business Advisory Council, established in 1995 by the National Republican Congressional Committee, is a group of conservative businessmen and women who advocate a progressive, conservative, pro-business agenda. The Washington-based organization pools the expertise of business leaders from across the United States to ensure small business issues remain a priority among government leaders.
