WASHINGTON, D. C. – Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement regarding the start of the 115th Congress:
“I was honored to be sworn in today to serve the people of the 8th district of Texas. The 115th Congress is going to be a historic Congress. The actions we take in the next two years will directly improve the lives of all Americans for years to come. We now have the best opportunity in over a decade to tackle some of the most complex challenges facing our nation and I am excited to get to work.
“Today is especially exciting for Members of the Ways and Means Committee because we are going to lead the way on the consequential policy issues at the heart of President-elect Trump’s agenda. In the days and weeks ahead, we’ll move forward on legislation to fix our broken tax code, improve health care, help more people climb out of poverty, deliver strong, enforceable trade agreements, and more. We’ve got an ambitious agenda and I’m honored to lead our Committee as we deliver real results for the American people.”
