New Ways And Means Committee Members

The following representatives have been newly added to the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, which has jurisdiction over Social Security:
  • Danny Davis (D-IL)
  • Bob Etheridge (D-NC)
  • Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ)
  • Brian Higgins (D-NY)
  • John Yarmuth (D-KY)
Higgins has been especially active in promoting the rights of Social Security disability claimants and would be a wonderful addition to the Social Security Subcommittee.

I have not heard yet about Subcommittee assignments or Subcommittee Chairmanships.
