Representative Jason Smith (R-Mo.) will lead the powerful House Ways and Means Committee after being selected as the committee’s new chairman on Monday.

Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform, issued the following statement congratulating Chairman Smith:

“Representative Jason Smith is an excellent choice to lead the House Ways and Means Committee. Rep. Smith has a proven legislative record advancing pro-growth policies that deliver more jobs, better wages and lower taxes. I look forward to working with Chairman Smith to rein in Biden’s super-sized IRS, reduce the tax burden for American households and businesses, and to make the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act permanent.”
