A local lawmaker has been named to a prominent position on a national legislative committee.
U.S. Representative Mike Kelly, of Butler, will serve as the lead Republican on the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Oversight.
“I am enormously honored to become Ranking Member of the Oversight Subcommittee and serve as an official guardian of America’s precious taxpayer dollars. During the last Congress, our full committee made history with the passage and enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which has successfully revived our economy, driven down unemployment to record lows, and put more money back in every hardworking taxpayer’s pocket. I look forward to working with Ranking Member Brady and the rest of my colleagues to preserve and strengthen this monumental law while making sure it’s being implemented the right way. From my new position, I also intend to hold the IRS fully accountable for its practices and its treatment of the American people, along with that of every other federal agency in our jurisdiction,” Rep. Kelly said in a statement Wednesday.
This subcommittee works with other subcommittees to assist the full committee with the goal of determining if certain laws are being carried out to Congressional intent. The Oversight subcommittee also looks closely at federal agencies, such as the IRS.
