Wyden becomes new Senate Finance Committee chairman, may target tax reform

Posted By Beth Farmer, Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) has formally taken over the chairmanship of the Senate Finance Committee. This is one of the most powerful leadership posts in Congress, with far-reaching jurisdiction over tax, trade and health care issues affecting every American. He replaces Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.), who will serve as the next U.S. ambassador to China.

It has been 30 years since there was a major overhaul of the tax code. President Obama has not signaled he wants to make tax reform a priority, and it won't happen without his support. But Wyden says, "I want to advance tax policy that gives everybody a chance to get ahead and helps the middle class."
