Wednesday's Ways and Means organizational meeting scheduled for Jan. 12, 2011, has been postponed due to Saturday's mass shooting in Arizona.

Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) issued the following statement at 3.15 p.m on Monday: 

"All business activity of the House Ways and Means Committee for January 12, 2011 has been postponed. This will allow Congress to conduct the necessary work with respect to the tragic events in Arizona and provide the opportunity for each of us to take time to reflect and pray for the victims of this senseless act."
