Senate Finance Committee announces subcommittee members
As the lone accountant on the Senate Finance Committee, U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., will serve as the Republican Leader on the Subcommittee on Taxation and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Oversight, allowing him to work directly on the nation’s tax system. The Senate Finance Committee announced the panel’s six subcommittees for the 113th Congress in an executive session during a hearing on the nation’s budget and economic outlook Feb. 26.
“I’m pleased to be on a panel charged with directly working on legislation to reform and modernize the confusing web of our current tax system,” said Enzi. “Our tax rules are overly complex and outdated, and they do not incentivize American economic growth. I look forward to the opportunity to preserve the committee process, and to restore sanity to our tax and fiscal policies.”
Enzi will also serve on the Finance Subcommittee on Health Care, as well as the Energy, Natural Resources and Infrastructure Subcommittee. Enzi is also a member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee, where he serves as the Republican Leader of the Subcommittee on Children and Families.
As a new member of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, Enzi will serve on the Financial and Contracting Oversight Subcommittee, the Efficiency and Effectiveness of Federal Programs and the Federal Workforce Subcommittee, and the Emergency Management, Intergovernmental Relations, and the District of Columbia Subcommittee.
Enzi’s other Senate committee assignments are the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee and the Budget Committee.
