House Ways and Means Committee chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., has announced he will not seek reelection after his term ends this year.

Camp has been a member of the House of Representatives since 1991. He has been focusing in recent years on tax reform since taking over the chairmanship of the tax-writing committee when control of the House went to Republicans in 2010, working closely with Senate Finance Committee chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., who recently retired from the Senate to become ambassador to China. In February, Camp released a draft version of his tax reform proposals (see House Ways and Means Chairman Camp Releases Tax Reform Proposal). However, his term as chairman of the Ways and Means Committee was scheduled to end this year.
