Note below from FNC Chad Pergram:
And it is important to note that there are now a staggering EIGHT total committee chairs in both bodies who are retiring..
Four in the House. Four in the Senate.
Why? Some are term-limited. Some frankly don’t think this place is very fun any more because they can’t get things done.
Ways and Means: Dave Camp (R-MI)
Intelligence: Mike Rogers (R-MI)
Natural Resources: Doc Hastings (R-WA)
Armed Services: Buck McKeon (R-CA)
Armed Services: Carl Levin (D-MI)
HELP: Tom Harkin (D-IA)
Commerce: Jay Rockefeller (D-WV)
Banking: Tim Johnson (D-SD)
And this does not include former Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) who left early and is now U.S. Ambassador to China.
