If Republicans win back control of the House next Tuesday, as expected, a new generation of leaders will assert themselves. An overwhelming majority of the 24 committee chairmen would occupy that position for the first time, Politico reports.

This new, younger generation is generally more conservative.

And above all, the new chairmen will be loyalists to Speaker-in-waiting John Boehner of Ohio. In a bid to reform Congress, Boehner has promised to devolve power back to these chairmen to give them more freedom and more legislative legroom.”
