Estes to Join House Ways and Means Trade and Tax Subcommittees
WASHINGTON – Rep. Ron Estes (R-Kansas) was selected to serve on the prestigious House Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee for the 117th Congress. Estes will also join the Select Revenue Measures (Tax) Subcommittee and serve his second term on the Social Security Subcommittee.
“I’m honored to join the Trade Subcommittee along with the Select Revenue Measures Subcommittee – these assignments align with my priorities in Congress and the needs of Kansans in the 4th District,” said Estes. “Kansas exports agricultural products, aircraft components, and other goods to countries around the world. I look forward to working with my colleagues to deliver free and fair trade deals and common sense tax reforms to rebuild our economy.”
“Our caucus is ready to stop radical ideas that kill jobs and fight for policies that lift up all Americans,” said Ways and Means Ranking Member Kevin Brady (R-Texas). “With these Subcommittee Republican Leaders and our membership in place, we will crush this virus and help workers, families, and small businesses rebuild the greatest economy in world history.”
Kansas Farm Bureau President Rich Felts said, “Free and fair trade is most important to the profitability of Kansas farmers and ranchers. We congratulate Representative Estes on this subcommittee appointment and look forward to working with him to further advance trade opportunities for the great products Kansas grows, raises, builds and adds additional value to.”
