Camp Statement on H.R. 3630 Conference Committee Appointment
Washington, DC – Today, Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) appointed Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) to serve on a Conference Committee to be made up of House and Senate members to resolve differences over H.R. 3630, The Middle Class Tax Relief & Job Creation Act.
“I urge my Democrat colleagues to quickly appoint conferees so we can ensure middle-class families are not hit with a tax increase next year, the unemployed do not have their benefits expire and seniors do not see the reimbursement rates for their doctors slashed. The only thing standing in the way of completing this bill is the Senate’s refusal to come back from vacation, appoint conferees and do the work the American people sent us here to do. Americans lucky enough to have a job in this economy are not on vacation, and Congress shouldn’t be either.”
