Camp Congratulates Levin on Ways and Means Ascension

March 04, 2010

Washington, DC – Ways and Means Ranking Member Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement upon the announcement that U.S. Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) will assume the chairmanship of the Ways and Means Committee.

“I want to congratulate Sandy, though I know this is not how he or anyone would want to take over the reins of the committee.  Sandy and I have had a long and good working relationship, especially when it comes to the Research and Development Tax Credit, and I expect that to continue. 

“Given the state of the economy, our nation needs this Congress and especially the Ways and Means Committee to fire on all cylinders.  I and every Republican on the Committee stand ready to work with Chairman Levin and our Democrat counterparts to find the solutions to put our nation back on a path to prosperity.”
