Committees and Caucuses

Committee on Ways and Means

Congressman Kevin Brady currently serves as the Republican Leader of the House Committee on Ways and Means, considered to be the most influential committee in Congress. Before becoming Ranking Member, Congressman Brady served as Chairman of the Committee for six years.

As Chairman, Brady led the effort to pass the historic Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on behalf of President Trump, resulting in the first comprehensive overhaul of America’s tax system in more than 30 years. This critical legislation reduced taxes across the board, redesigned our tax code so American businesses could compete and win anywhere in the world, made America the most competitive economy on the planet, lifted millions of Americans out of poverty, and stopped U.S. businesses from moving overseas. Brady also successfully negotiated an end to the 40-year ban on selling U.S. crude oil overseas on behalf of Speaker Paul Ryan—his first achievement as Chairman.

The Committee on Ways and Means is the oldest committee of the United States Congress, and is the chief tax-writing committee in the House of Representatives. The committee has jurisdiction over all taxation, tariffs, and other revenue-raising measures, as well as a number of other programs including Social Security, unemployment insurance and Medicare.
