Brian Egolf (born September 10, 1976 in Santa Fe, New Mexico) is an American attorney and politician who has served as a member of the New Mexico House of Representatives since 2009. He was elected Speaker of the House by acclamation in January, 2017.
In the 2017 legislative session, Egolf served on the Judiciary, Rules and Order of Business, and Taxation & Revenue Committees.
Egolf championed equal pay for equal work for the women of New Mexico, reduced government corruption through the creation of a statewide independent ethics commission, and passed legislation to penalize the distribution of sensitive images, such as child pornography. As a private practice attorney, Egolf filed suit in New Mexico district court on behalf of a gay couple that was denied a marriage license. That case helped turn the tide toward marriage equality in New Mexico and just a few months later, the state's Supreme court ruled to legalize gay marriage, making New Mexico the 17th state to do so.
Egolf resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico with his family.
