Wyden Statement on Warren Joining Finance Committee

Senate Finance Committee Incoming Chair Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today released the following statement regarding the announcement that U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., will be joining the Finance Committee:

“I’m thrilled to welcome Senator Warren to the Finance Committee. Senator Warren has been a tireless advocate for the middle class and I look forward to working with her on a range of issues, particularly fixing our broken tax code and ensuring billionaires and mega corporations pay their fair share.

“Income inequality will be a major focus of my legislative and investigative work, and Senator Warren will certainly play a significant role in advancing this agenda.

“Senator Warren's longstanding commitment to affordable health care and accountability for entrenched special interests will also be a welcome addition as the committee works to lower health care costs for families.”
