More Named to House Financial Services Positions
House Financial Service Committee Chairman-elect Jeb Hensarling
(R-Texas) has announced the names of those who will comprise the
Republican leadership team for his panel and its subcommittees.
Meanwhile, the House Democratic Caucus named the six new Democratic
members it will send to the Financial Services Committee next year.
Hensarling also announced plans to combine two existing
subcommittees--the Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology Subcommittee
and the International Monetary Policy and Trade Subcommittee.
The parent financial services committee's leadership team for the 113th Congress, in addition to Henarling, is:
Rep. Gary Miller (Calif.), who will serve as vice chairman of the committee; and
Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (Ga.), who will serve in a newly created position as the Committee Whip.
Hensarling named the following to head the panel's subcommittees:
Rep. Randy Neugebauer (Texas), who will serve as chairman of the Insurance, Housing and Community Opportunity Subcommittee;
Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (W. Va.), who will serve as chairman of the Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Subcommittee;
Rep. Scott Garrett (N.J.), who will serve as chairman of the Capital
Markets and Government-Sponsored Enterprises Subcommittee;
Rep. Patrick McHenry (N.C.), who will serve as chairman of the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee; and
Rep. John Campbell (Calif.), who will serve as chairman of the Domestic and International Monetary Policy Subcommittee.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced the House
Democratic Caucus' choice of the following new House Financial Services
Rep.-elect Bill Foster of Illinois;
Rep.-elect Dan Kildee of Michigan;
Rep.-elect Patrick Murphy of Florida;
Rep.-elect John Delaney of Maryland;
Rep.-elect Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona; and,
Rep.-elect Joyce Beatty of Ohio.
The Senate will re-convene today at 10 a.m. (ET) and begin consideration
of a bill (H.R. 5949) that would extend the Foreign Intelligence
Surveillance Act of 2008 for five years. House leaders have said they
will give a 48-hour warning if that chamber will reconvene, so, at this
writing, Friday would be the earliest time the House could come back
into session. A stalemate over the fiscal cliff continues.
