Renacci Named To Tax-Writing Panel

A second Republican congressman from Ohio has been appointed to the House Ways and Means Committee. Second-term congressman Jim Renacci of northeast Ohio was appointed by committee chair Dave Camp of Michigan.

Renacci's district stretches from Canton west to Ashland and north to Medina. Because of House rules on committee assignments, Renacci will leave the House Financial Services Committee. He fills a Ways and Means vacancy created when South Carolina Republican Tim Scott got appointed to a Senate vacancy. Central Ohio's Pat Tiberi also serves on the Ways and Means Committee.
