Government Printing Office publication for the Federal Depository Library:

Excerpts: The period from 1890 to 1915 was an era in our nation?s history in which reformers attacked privilege and autocracy. This reform impulse was first manifested against the existence of trusts and high tariffs in the business community, and later burgeoned into a comprehensive reform movement known as Progressivism. Changes were also wrought in Congress when a group of representatives rebelled against the Speaker?s rigid control over the legislative process that had existed since the early 1880s. In different ways, both factors enhanced the position of the Committee on Ways and Means. The importance of tariff reform focused attention upon the committee, and congressional reform strengthened its leadership role.
