Congresswoman Suzan DelBene has been selected to serve on the House Ways and Means Committee, the chief tax-writing committee in the House of Representatives.

“We need an economy that works for everyone. Unfortunately, our current tax system is failing American families and is out of date with the way the world works today,” DelBene said. “We need a bipartisan solution that simplifies our tax code for millions of hardworking families and ends special interest tax breaks that haven’t given us a strong return on investment. I will work with both sides of the aisle to achieve this goal.”

The House Ways and Means Committee will be at the forefront of much debate in the 115th Congress, where Republicans have prioritized tax reform, repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA), privatizing Medicare and reforming Social Security – all of which will go through the Committee before reaching the House floor.
