The White House has tapped a veteran top aide to Speaker Paul Ryan to serve as its chief liaison to the House of Representatives, sources tell the Washington Examiner.

Joyce Meyer is Ryan’s deputy chief of staff, was staff director when he served as chairman of the Ways and Means committee, and was a top adviser to him before then.

Meyer is set to be named President Trump’s point person for legislative affairs in the House. Marc Short is Trump’s legislative director, reporting to deputy White House Chief of Staff Rick Dearborn.

Meyer is well regarded among House Republicans. Her installation into this key post is likely to be viewed favorably by House Republicans because of her Capitol Hill connections.

Ryan and Trump had an uneven relationship during the campaign but say they are now cooperating closely.
