Committee reapportionments for the 112th Congress began to leak out Thursday, and the following 22 Republicans will serve on the Ways and Means Committee, according to a list obtained by Roll Call.
Democratic seats on the panel will fall from 26 to 15, a GOP aide with knowledge of the cuts told Roll Call. Democrats have not confirmed the number, and their Members on the committee have not been identified.

Each year since 1990, CQ Roll Call has reviewed the financial disclosures of all 541 senators, representatives and delegates to determine the 50 richest members of Congress. This year's report, derived from forms covering the calendar year 2012, shows it took a net worth of $6.67 million to crack the exclusive club.
