Congressman Darin LaHood was recently appointed as the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Work and Welfare. LaHood will also continue to serve on the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Trade.
"It is an honor to serve as the Chairman of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Work and Welfare in the 118th Congress," said Rep. LaHood. "On the Work and Welfare Subcommittee, we will work to strengthen child and family care, ensure an effective and accountable use of taxpayer money, and address the rampant COVID-era unemployment fraud. The Ways and Means Committee will play a key role in this Congress, working to get our economy back on track, bolstering trade opportunities for Illinois ag producers, expanding access to rural health care, building off the successes of TCJA, and reducing inflation. I look forward to working with Chairman Jason Smith and my Ways and Means colleagues to address the kitchen table issues that Americans sent a Republican majority to Washington to fix."
In addition to the Ways and Means Committee, LaHood will also serve on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Select Committee on China.
