With the 116th Congress now in session, we would like to encourage you to invite your representatives for tours of your company. On-site tours allow members of Congress to see first-hand the value of employee-owned companies. ESCA has given an update below of the 10 new members from the House Democrats who have been appointed to the House Ways and Means Committee.


January 10, 2019

Last night, House Democrats appointed ten new members to the House Ways and Means Committee. House Democrats added to their current 14-member Committee roster in the wake of their 39 seat gain in the 2018 midterm elections, and because of the retirement of longtime Ways and Means member Sander Levin (D-MI-9) and the loss of Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY-14). Democrats will have a total of 24 Members of the Ways and Means Committee for the 116th Congress. Republicans are expected to appoint their new Committee members next week.

 Listed below are the new Democratic Ways and Means additions with information on their congressional district and a link to a their district map. If your company has a facility, job site, or employee-owners in any of the Member districts listed below, we would be interested in working with you on organizing a Member visit.
