The son of Italian immigrants and the oldest of three children, Pat Tiberi is a life-long resident of the 12th Congressional District. His working class parents found a home in the Northland area of Columbus, started a family, and made certain to instill in their children the value of a good education. Pat and his sisters attended the Columbus Public Schools' Northland High School where Pat became the first in his family to graduate from high school. Pat enrolled in The Ohio State University, where he played the trumpet in The Ohio State University Marching Band. In addition to his studies and band commitments, Pat worked at various jobs around town to earn the money to pay for his tuition. He graduated with a degree in journalism, but instead found himself serving his future constituents as an aide to then-Congressman John Kasich. He later decided to expand his opportunities to serve the community through election to public office and was chosen to serve in the Ohio Legislature where he eventually rose to the position of majority leader.
Pat was first elected in 2000. Since entering the U.S. House, he has worked to further policies seeking a smaller, less intrusive government, lower taxes, greater national security and a growing and expanding economy that creates jobs. Pat, his wife, Denice, and their four daughters live in Genoa Township, a suburb of Columbus, and attend St. John Neumann Catholic Church in Delaware County.
Pat's position on the House Committee on Ways and Means allows him opportunities to influence issues that affect us all like taxes, Social Security, Medicare, trade and health care. Pat serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health and is a member of the Tax Policy Subcommittee. He previously served as the Chairman of the Tax Policy Subcommittee and the Subcommittee on Trade, where he helped usher the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) bill through the House to ensure accountability and transparency in future trade agreements. As the Chairman of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health, Tiberi has led the charge on solutions to increase choices, reduce costs and put patients at the center of our health care system. During his first year as chairman, several of his priorities to improve patient care and provide regulatory relief to hospitals, including many in Ohio, became law. Tiberi is also the Chairman of the Joint Economic Committee where Members examine economic conditions and recommend improvements to economic policy. The chairmanship and the vice-chairmanship alternate between the House and the Senate every Congress. Pat works to produce real results for Central Ohio residents. He believes families know better than the federal government how to spend their hard-earned money and fights to protect their wallets. For his leadership looking out for taxpayers and families, he has received the Hero of the Taxpayer Award presented by Americans for Limited Government.
While Pat travels to Washington, D.C. for votes and hearings, he lives in Central Ohio and returns home every weekend. This mentality is why the non-partisan Cook Political Report called Pat "one of the hardest working incumbents in the country." Pat remains active in the community, speaking at schools, at Rotary club meetings, and holding office hours for his constituents.
Pat knows that in order to create jobs in Ohio, businesses need a level playing field and a stable economic and regulatory environment. Pat wrote and introduced three pieces of legislation that were signed into law. Two of these bills allow businesses to more quickly depreciate certain investments, which creates stability for American employers, allowing them to better plan and expand their businesses, encouraging job creation and economic growth. America's Small Business Tax Relief Act permanently extended increased small business expensing levels outlined in Section 179 of the tax code. The other bill extended bonus depreciation for five years, allowing employers to take increased deductions for certain equipment and allowing more companies to use Alternative Minimum Tax credits for capital investment. Pat also introduced the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act. This bill was signed into law in 2016. His bill, the New Markets Tax Credit Extension Act, laid the groundwork for a five year extension of this tax credit that helps attract private capital to some of the most distressed communities in the country where access to capital is often limited. Additionally, he introduced a bill that was signed into law that provides a permanent floor for the Low Income Housing Tax Credit, which removes uncertainty in the tax code and boosts the availability of affordable housing.
He is a leader in the fight to reform pork-barrel spending and has not requested earmarks since 2007. As the Chairman of the Select Education Subcommittee, Pat wrote and helped pass the Older Americans Reauthorization Act of 2006. Additionally, he worked with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to change one of its reimbursement rules to allow The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center's James Cancer Hospital to receive a fair reimbursement rate for their treatment of Medicare patients, allowing them to treat even more patients and conduct even more important research. For his leadership initiatives, Pat has received numerous awards including the Tax Foundation's Distinguished Service Award, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Spirit of Enterprise Award, the National Federation of Independent Business' Guardian of Small Business Award, and the Emergency Committee on American Trade's Trade and Investment Leadership Award.
