“I’m grateful for the confidence that Speaker Phelan has shown by entrusting me with this important committee. Our work on Ways & Means can play a vital role in how our economy rebounds from COVID. I’m committed to leading for a smart, innovative approach to tax reform and tax relief while making sure that we are fully funding essentials like public education and public safety,” said Chairman Morgan Meyer.
