Jason Chaffetz is reportedly considering taking a "substantial" on-air role with Fox News as early as July, the Washingtonian reported.

Their sources: Two GOP lawmakers "who have spoken to Chaffetz directly" and four House Republican aides.

Don't forget: Chaffetz announced in April he would not seek re-election for his spot as Utah Representative or as House Oversight Committee chairman. He made the announcement the same day Fox News officially cut ties with Bill O'Reilly.

Why it matters: If the reports are confirmed (Fox News did not respond to Axios' request for comment), it could signal the network's hope to maintain their right-leaning brand, especially amid criticism that they're moving too far to the left.

One controversial Chaffetz quote: "So maybe, rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and they want to go spend hundreds of dollars on, maybe they should invest that in health care."

The Supreme Court ended its term with a series of rulings on religion's role in schools, the workplace and access to health care.

Why it matters: The decisions elevated protections for people and employers of faith, while curtailing those of religion teachers, the nonreligious taxpayer and women who rely on their workplaces' health care plans for contraception.
