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.”
