This just in, from Business First:

U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth, D-Louisville, has been selected to serve on the U.S. House Ways & Means Committee for the 111th Congress.

The committee oversees health care, retirement security, tax policy, trade and child welfare matters.

The committee “will be the front line for many of the tough challenges that confront our nation in the coming years,” Yarmuth said in a news release. “I look forward to working for solutions that will revitalize our economy, provide affordable health care to all Americans, bolster retirement security and ensure that every child in America has the opportunity to succeed.”

This could be interesting news for Kentucky businesses. Stay tuned.
