"Many are just the normal attrition of Congress," said Senior Policy Advisor Tom Reynolds. "Pat Tiberi has been on that committee a long time. He has the same dreams of trying to get the comprehensive reform that anybody else who has served on the committee does, so he’s got an opportunity” to get it done before leaving, Mr. Reynolds added.
