Rep. Kevin Brady announces retirement

“This term, my 13th, will be the last,” he said when speaking to the Woodland Area Chamber of Commerce in his district.

“As you may not know, I can’t chair the Ways and Means committee for the next session if the Republicans limit leadership of the committee to six years if the Republicans win back a majority of the House,” Brady said. “Did that take into account? Quite a few, to be honest. “

Brady, who was first elected in 1996, represents a solid Republican portion of the suburbs north of Houston.

The population explosion around Houston over the past decade means that Republicans who have full control over the redistribution are likely to make significant changes to the new Congressional map for the 2022 election.
