The Committee on Ways and Means

The Committee on Ways and Means
The Committee on Ways and Means was first established as a select committee on July 24, 1789. It was discharged less than two months later. Reappointed continuously from the first session of the Fourth Congress (1795-1797) in 1795, the panel functioned essentially as a standing committee before it was formally listed as such in the House Rules on January 7, 1802. Until 1865, the jurisdiction of the committee (referred to as the Committee of Ways and Means before 1880) included the critically important areas of revenue, appropriations, and banking. Since 1865, the committee has continued to exercise jurisdiction over revenue and related issues such as tariffs, reciprocal trade agreements, and the bonded debt of the United States. Revenue-related aspects of the Social Security system, Medicare, and welfare programs have come within Ways and Means'' purview in the 20th century.
