BioCongressman Dave Camp represents the people of the 4th Congressional District of Michigan, which spans from Owosso to Greenville and northward to Traverse City and the Leelanau peninsula. Camp is the top Republican on the Ways and Means Committee, which is one of the oldest and most powerful committees in the U.S. House of Representatives.
In his leadership role, Camp is one of the most influential policymakers in Washington, DC, 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. Known for personally signing over 40,000 constituent letters each year, in addition to thousands of one-on-one meetings, Camp stays in close touch with his district.
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.
