WASHINGTON, D.C. — Speaker-designate John Boehner (R-OH) today announced the appointment of Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) as Vice Chairman of the Joint Economic Committee (JEC):
“Kevin Brady has been, and will continue to be, a leader in Republicans’ efforts to cut spending, rein in the size of government, and help small businesses create jobs, consistent with the GOP’s Pledge to America. His background as an advocate for small businesses and expertise on economic and trade policy will be key assets for our Conference as we develop solutions to grow our economy and create jobs for middle-class families. I look forward to working with him in his role as Vice Chairman.”
