LaHood Named to Ways and Means Committee

Congressman Darin LaHood has been tabbed to serve on the House Ways & Means Committee. The Peoria area Republican received the appointment, replacing Ohio's Pat Tiberi. LaHood looks forward to the post on chief tax writing committee in the House.

LaHood believes the new committee assignment will give a boost to the 18th Congressional District.

The Committee has jurisdiction over all taxation, trade and tariffs, and other revenue-raising measures. The appointment will be confirmed by the full House Republican Conference in the coming days.
