Legislative update: Brady nominated for Ways and Means chair

Ways and Means Chairman

The House Republican Steering Committee today nominated Kevin Brady (R-TX) to be the next chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. Brady’s selection as chair must be approved by the House Republican caucus, and that vote is expected later this week.

If approved by the Republican caucus, Brady would replace Paul Ryan (who ended his term as Ways and Means chair on becoming Speaker of the House).


Rep. Brady is a senior member of the Ways and Means Committee. In this session of Congress, he has sponsored three tax bills that have been passed by the House:

  • H.R. 880 to make the research and development (R&D) credit permanent
  • H.R. 622 to make the state and local sales tax deduction permanent
  • H.R. 1105 to repeal the estate tax
