LaHood Appointed to Ways and Means

Story by WBGZ Radio

Peoria U.S. Rep. Darin LaHood has been appointed to the House Ways and Means Committee. The oldest committee in congress is the main tax-writing body for the House. The move means LaHood steps down from his posts at the Natural Resources and Science, Space, and Technology committees.

LaHood said the new position will allow him to advocate tax policy, more affordable health care and other issues important to Illinois.
