Roman Buhler

National Director, Madison Coalition

Roman Buhler is the National Director of the Madison Coalition, working to restore a balance of state and federal power and now, with the Resolutions passed in 29 State Legislative Chambers to persuade Congress to propose the “Regulation Freedom Amendment” to require that major new federal regulations be approved by Congress.

He has worked to develop a strategy to implement an idea originally proposed by Ronald Reagan’s Attorney General Ed Meese for giving states the same power as Congress to propose a specific Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Much as pressure from the states and voters helped persuade Congress to propose the Bill of Rights, a woman’s right to vote, and presidential term limits, similar pressure could persuade Congress to propose a popular Amendment to curb the abuse of federal power.

Buhler served as Newt Gingrich’s first Committee Counsel and from 1989 to 2003 and again in 2007 as Elections Counsel to the Committee on House Administration, handling election issues, for House Republicans. As Counsel he his work included promoting legislation to protect election integrity, overseeing the regulatory activities of the Federal Election Commission, and investigating allegations of election fraud in contested elections for Congress.

Prior to his service in the House, Buhler worked as an attorney and political consultant in California. He graduated from Stanford University, the University of Southern California Law School, and the Harvard University Program for Senior Managers in Government.
