Pete Stark Replaces Charlie Rangel on House Ways and Means Committee

Yesterday House Speaker Nancy Pelosi selected Congressman Pete Stark of California to head the powerful Ways and Means Committee, replacing New York Congressman Charlie Rangel, who has stepped aside temporarily amid ethics investigations. Stark is best known in health care for first proposing what is now known as “the Stark law,” which regulates physician self-referral, in 1988. The first version of the Stark law was passed in 1989.
