The Ways and Means Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives today announced that the House Steering Committee has recommended that Rep. Mike Bishop (R-MI) be appointed to serve on the Ways and Means Committee now that former Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) has been sworn in as the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
The jurisdiction of the Ways and Means Committee includes tax and revenue matters.
The House Steering Committee is responsible for recommending members of Congress to serve on standing House committees, and its recommendations are subject to approval by the House Republican Conference.
Ways and Means ranking member Richard Neal (D-MA) earlier this month announced that the Democratic Caucus had approved Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA) to join the Ways and Means Committee, to fill the vacancy left by former Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA).
