11-HC-WM on Feb 3, 2011

Decided Mar 2, 2011
Membership Roster: of the House Ways and Means Committee
Source: U.S. House of Representatives website, www.house.gov
The Committee of Ways and Means is the chief tax-writing committee of the United States House of Representatives. Members of the Ways and Means Committee cannot serve on any other House Committees, though they can apply for a waiver from their party's congressional leadership. The Committee has jurisdiction over all taxation, tariffs and other revenue-raising measures, as well as a number of other programs including:
  • Social Security
  • Unemployment benefits
  • Medicare
  • Enforcement of child support laws
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, a federal welfare program
  • Foster care and adoption programs
The U.S. Constitution requires that all bills regarding taxation must originate in the House of Representatives. Since House procedure is that all bills regarding taxation must go through this committee, the committee is very influential, as is its Senate counterpart, the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance.
