+ No hay comentarios
Earlier this week, it was announced that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) would become Chairman of the House Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee in the 113th Congress. Nunes succeeds Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX), who will become Chairman of the Health Subcommittee. During his five terms in Congress, Nunes has been a strong supporter of international trade. In a statement, Rep. Nunes identified "progress toward a U.S.-EU free trade agreement and the expansion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership" as priorities for his tenure as Chairman of the Trade Subcommittee. "Boosting U.S. participation in free and fair trade will benefit both the United States and our trading partners," he said. "It will open new opportunities to promote economic growth for my constituents in California's San Joaquin Valley, as well as for the agriculture, manufacturing, and service industries throughout America."

Separately, it was announced that Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), the former Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, will become the Ranking Member on Trade Subcommittee. Rangel succeeds Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA), who served as the top Democrat on the Trade Subcommittee during the 112th Congress. Democrats also announced their other members on the Trade Subcommittee: Reps. Richard Neal (D-MA), John Larson (D-CT), Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), and Ron Kind (D-WI). Republicans have not yet finalized subcommittee assignments for the 113th Congress.
