Randolph, J. (n.d.). The Jeffersonian Republican - Committee. Retrieved from

Government Printing Office publication for the Federal Depository Library:

Excerpts: The development of the Committee of Ways and Means accelerated during the period of Jeffersonian Republican ascendancy as issues, events, and personalities thrust the committee to the forefront of legislative procedure in the House. Although this period has been named after the President and leader of the majority party, Congress became more independent of presidential leadership, especially after Jefferson left office in 1809. The development of legislative procedure in the House also strengthened both the committee system in general and the Committee of Ways and Means in particular because of its jurisdiction over revenue and appropriations. The Republican dominated committee was chaired throughout this era by influential party leaders including John Randolph of Virginia, William Lowndes and Langdon Cheves of South Carolina, and Samuel Smith of Maryland.
