Rep. Pat Tiberi, R-Ohio, is expected to resign to take an executive position with an Ohio business group, three Republicans who were briefed on his plans told The New York Times.

Tiberi, a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee, could announce his plan to leave this week, which could indicate discontent among congressional Republicans over the inability to push through policy goals such as tax reform and Obamacare repeal, according to the Times.

"This is a harder life in terms of being away from home and putting up with the pace and the public battering that one sometimes must endure. And no raises in a decade is hard on many members with families," said Oklahoma Rep. Tom Cole.

"Congress will be a poorer place without him," Cole said, referring to Tiberi.

The Ohio congressman was an ally of former House Speaker John Boehner, and had considered challenging Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, for Senate next year. Tiberi had more than $6.6 million in his re-election account at the start of October, according to the Times.

Other members also have announced intentions to leave Congress. Those include: Reps. Charlie Dent, R-Penn.; Dave Reichert, R-Wash.; Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla. and Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn.
