House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., is cancer-free.
The top GOP tax writer had announced he was being treated for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma over the summer. At the time, Camp called it a "highly treatable and curable type" of cancer.
On Tuesday, he announced he was "cancer-free."
“I am extremely thankful for the excellent treatment I received from dedicated physicians, nurses and medical staff. It not only allowed me to become cancer-free, but also sustained me in my work," Camp said.
Camp is expected to play a crucial role in any potential tax reform in 2013.
"I want to thank everyone for their many words of encouragement, understanding and prayers. My family and I will forever appreciate that support," Camp said.
