WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) today released the following statements regarding the Chairman’s appointment of Patricia King to the Treasury Tribal Advisory Committee (TTAC). Chairman Brady appointed Ms. King to serve on the TTAC at the recommendation of Rep. Nunes, who sponsored the bill creating the TTAC.
“Ms. King has advocated on behalf of the Oneida Tribe in Wisconsin for almost three decades, demonstrating an unwavering commitment to the tribal community,” said Chairman Brady. “My appointment of Ms. King recognizes her impressive experience—from drafting tribal policy to serving as Tribal Treasurer for the Oneida Business Committee. I know Ms. King will continue to serve her community well and will be an asset to the TTAC.”
“I applaud Patricia King’s appointment to the Tribal Advisory Committee. Based on her experience and work ethic, I am confident she will capably serve the Committee and greatly assist its important work,” said Rep. Nunes.
Ms. King currently serves as Tribal Treasurer on the Oneida Business Committee. Prior to this, she served as a Councilmember on the Oneida Business Committee. Earlier in her career, she worked in the office of a Tribal Councilman.
The TTAC was created by the Tribal General Welfare Exclusion Act of 2014 to advise the Treasury Secretary on tax matters related to Indian tribes.
