House Financial Services Chairman Announces Subcommittee Assignments

U.S. Rep. Jeb Hensarling has named Republican members of Congress to serve on the Oversight and Investigations, Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit subcommittees, among others.


U.S. Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, has announced subcommittee assignments for Republican members of Congress.

The assignments include the Capital Markets, Securities and Investment, Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit; Oversight and Investigations; Monetary Policy and Trade; Terrorism and Illicit Finance subcommittees following Hensarling’s announcement of leadership of those subcommittees and new members earlier this month, as ACA International previously reported.

“I look forward to working with all of our members to help build a healthy economy that offers everyone an equal opportunity to succeed,” Hensarling said in a news release.

Chairman Hensarling will serve as an ex officio member of all subcommittees.

A full list of the subcommittee assignments is available on the House Financial Services Committee website.

ACA will be monitoring activity on regulation of the CFPB and TCPA as the 115th Congress continues its work in 2017.

With the change in the political landscape, ACA will continue to encourage its members to meet with their elected representatives when they are in their home districts to discuss industry issues and learn about priorities important to members of Congress.

At ACA’s 2016 Fall Forum & Expo in Chicago, ACA President Keith Kettelkamp announced All InÔ, a program that allows members to submit participation details about their advocacy efforts at the state and federal level and events such as the Washington Insights Conference.

Records of participation in all such efforts will be tracked when submitted by members through ACA’s All InTM program page on the newly redesigned ACA website. By submitting a brief summary of legislative activities, the result, as well as their company name and location, members will qualify for recognition through the All InTM program.

ACA can help coordinate meetings with members of Congress. More information can be found at ACA’s Advocacy Action Center. Interested members should contact ACA’s Vice President of Congressional and Political Affairs Rae Ann Bevington at (202) 547-2670 or bevington@acainternational.org.
