Ross to Join Two Subcommittees of House Committee on Financial Services
Will Join Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises and Oversight and Investigations
Jan 22 -
U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross (FL-15) will be officially assigned to serve on the following two key Financial Services subcommittees on Wednesday when the panel votes to adopt its rules for the 113th Congress: Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises; and Oversight and Investigations.
“I am thankful for the opportunity to serve on these two key subcommittees of the House Committee on Financial Services,” said Ross. “Serving on the Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises subcommittee is a natural fit for me, coming from Florida where I championed free market principles and protected the taxpayer. I also look forward to my new role through the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations to bring the needed oversight and guidance to the excessive federal regulation plaguing Washington. The 15th District is home to seniors who are living on incomes determined by these markets, and families have waited too long for the housing market to recover. It is time that Floridians have a chance to once again prosper.”
-The jurisdiction of the Subcommittee on Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises includes: securities, exchanges, and finance; capital markets activities, including business capital formation and venture capital; activities involving futures, forwards, options, and other types of derivative instruments; the Securities and Exchange Commission; secondary market organizations for home mortgages, including the Federal National Mortgage Association, the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, and the Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation; the Federal Housing Finance Agency; and the Federal Home Loan Banks.
-The jurisdiction of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations includes: the oversight of all agencies, departments, programs, and matters within the jurisdiction of the Committee, including the development of recommendations with regard to the necessity or desirability of enacting, changing, or repealing any legislation within the jurisdiction of the Committee, and for conducting investigations within such jurisdiction; and research and analysis regarding matters within the jurisdiction of the Committee, including the impact or probable impact of tax policies affecting matters within the jurisdiction of the Committee.
-In the 112th Congress, Rep. Ross served on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the House Judiciary Committee, and the House Education and Workforce Committee.
-In the 113th Congress, Rep. Ross will serve on the House Committee on Financial Services.
