New Ways and Means: Reform and Change in a Congressional Committee

Synopsis

Using the Committee on Ways and Means for a case study, Strahan assesses the far-reaching effects of internal reform efforts in the House of Representatives in the 1970s. Responsible for reviewing tax, trade, and social welfare legislation, the committee became an epicenter of the upheavals that rocked the House. The author focuses on the role of the committee in the unexpected breakthrough on comprehensive tax reform and emphasizes the importance of leadership on the postreform committee.
