Rep.-elect Andrew Clyde is returning to Capitol Hill, five years after he testified before the House Ways and Means Committee about legislation to keep the IRS from raiding small-business bank accounts. The bill eventually was passed into law by the 116th Congress.
Now, the Georgia Republican is hoping to use that experience as a lawmaker.
“I decided if one man can make a difference as an individual, then maybe I can do even more as an actual elected representative,” Clyde said in an interview with CQ Roll Call.
