Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) has been selected to serve as Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Select Revenue Measures, previously known as the Subcommittee on Tax Policy, which has jurisdiction over federal tax legislation and oversees tax policy implementation by the Internal Revenue Service.

From Congressman Smith:

“I am honored to lead the important work of the tax subcommittee on behalf of my Republican colleagues,” said Congressman Smith. “My priority will always be to fight for conservative policies centered around personal responsibility and respect for the free market. Congressional Democrats have made clear their intent to stymie the president’s agenda at every turn, including the repeal of landmark tax reforms we championed in the last Congress. I will do everything in my power to build on this progress and increase economic opportunity for Nebraskans, and for all Americans.”

From Ways & Means Committee Ranking Member, Kevin Brady:

“Hardworking Americans who were left behind during the previous administration are now finally seeing more jobs and bigger paychecks thanks to President Trump and our GOP pro-growth agenda. Congressman Smith and I are ready to roll up our sleeves and work with our Democrat colleagues to protect the growing paychecks of America’s workers and ensure this booming economy isn’t slowed down. I look forward to working with Adrian as we continue to fight for policies that promote more opportunities for workers and families across the country.”
