Washington, D.C. – On Wednesday, U.S. Congresswoman Michelle Fischbach, the U.S. Representative for western Minnesota, was unanimously appointed by her colleagues to the House Ways and Means Committee, which has jurisdiction over tax, trade, workforce, and health policies, among others.

“I am honored to have been selected for the Ways & Means Committee and I am excited to be a voice for rural Minnesota as we work to ensure the U.S. economy remains strong and continues to dominate on the world stage,” said Congresswoman Fischbach. “America has always been able to lead economically. The communities I represent understand that agriculture benefits from a competitive tax code and robust market access. The Ways & Means Committee is the strongest platform by which Congress can pursue both of these goals. I look forward to working with my colleagues to fight for American agriculture and American families on this important committee.”
