Brady Will Challenge Ryan for Ways and Means Gavel

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) said that he will challenge House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) for the Ways and Means Committee gavel next year, Roll Call reports.

Reigning Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) must relinquish his title next year due to term limits.

Said Brady: "He's a terrific leader, a good friend. But the point is, I'm qualified and prepared to lead this committee. At the right time, I'm going to make that case to my colleagues. This is all about the ideas and how we can move tax reform, trade, entitlement reform forward, so it's good to have a healthy competition."
