WASHINGTON, January 6, 2017 – House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) today announced the committee’s leadership team for the 115th Congress.
“I look forward to working alongside my colleagues to pass laws that promote a dynamic economy with more jobs, higher wages and greater economic freedom for all Americans,” said Chairman Hensarling. “Our committee will continue to develop bold, forward-looking plans that hold Washington and Wall Street accountable, end taxpayer-funded bailouts and protect consumer choice.”
During the 114th Congress, 69 percent of the bills reported by the committee passed the House and 36 bills were signed into law. The committee held 31 full committee hearings and 82 subcommittee hearings during the 114th Congress.
Chairman Hensarling also announced the creation of a new subcommittee that will investigate the financial support networks used by terrorists and others who threaten national security. The new subcommittee will build off of the work done by the committee’s Task Force to Investigate Terrorism Financing, which issued a report of its investigation in December.
