Congressman Dave Camp represents the people of the 4th Congressional District of Michigan, which spans fifteen counties across mid and northern Michigan. Camp is the Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, which is one of the oldest and most powerful committees in the U.S. House of Representatives.
As the head of the Committee on Ways and Means, Camp is one of the most influential policymakers in Washington, D.C., helping to set the nation’s economic, health care and social welfare policies. His committee has sole jurisdiction over tax policy and oversees tariff and trade laws, Medicare, Social Security, and welfare and unemployment programs.
Born and raised in Midland, Michigan, where he and his wife and three children reside, Camp’s top priority has always been serving his constituents. Camp stays in close touch with his district and is known for personally signing thousands of constituent letters each year.
Recognized for “decisive breakthroughs” on significant legislation since his first days in Congress, Camp’s signature issues include making America more competitive by lowering and simplifying tax rates for individuals, families and employers; reforming health care to focus on wellness and prevention; expanding access to quality, affordable health care through tax free savings accounts; protecting the welfare of our nation’s children through family focused foster care and adoption programs; and, promoting the production and use of alternative energy, which is a growing industry in Michigan and the Fourth Congressional District.
