Rep. Vern Buchanan

Congressman Vern Buchanan is co-chair of the bipartisan 30-member Florida Congressional Delegation and Vice Chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, which has jurisdiction over tax policy, international trade, health care, welfare, Social Security and Medicare. He is the most senior Republican on the committee and currently serves as Chairman of the Health Subcommittee.

A successful businessman, Congressman Buchanan believes that America’s economic strength flows from its entrepreneurial spirit and pro-growth, free-market policies. He sits on the Joint Committee on Taxation, a small group of the most senior tax-writers in Congress. He has also been ranked one of the most bipartisan and effective members of Congress by two non-partisan organizations: the Lugar Center and the Center for Effective Lawmaking. In 2020, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce also ranked Congressman Buchanan the most effective member of the Florida congressional delegation.
