CLEVELAND (AP) - A second Republican congressman from Ohio has been appointed to the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee.
Second-term congressman Jim Renacci of northeast Ohio was appointed Thursday by committee chairman Dave Camp of Michigan.
Renacci's district stretches from Canton west to Ashland and north to Medina in suburban Cleveland.
Because of House rules on committee assignments, Renacci will leave the House Financial Services Committee.
Renacci fills a Ways and Means vacancy created when South Carolina Republican Tim Scott was appointed to a Senate vacancy.
Ohio's Pat Tiberi of suburban Columbus also serves on the Ways and Means Committee.
