Just one week after she helped pass the tax bill, U.S. Rep. Diane Black announced today she would step down from her position as chair of the House Budget Committee, the Nashville Post reports. Black is currently running for governor of Tennessee, in which she leads polls for the Republican nomination. Rules require committee chairs running for office to step down, but House Speaker Paul Ryan had granted her a temporary waiver.
