House Financial Services Committee to Tackle Multiple Topics in November
Last week, House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) announced several committee hearings and topics that her committee is set to address over the month of November. The House is currently out of session on a District Work Period through Veterans Day, with business set to resume on Tuesday, November 12.
The first topic that the Committee will examine will come on November 13, when the Subcommittee on National Security, International Development, and Monetary Policy (Chaired by Rep. Emanuel Cleaver from Missouri) will hold a hearing entitled “How America Leads Abroad: An Examination of Multilateral Development Institutions.” The committee is also slated to hold a two-day markup of pending legislation on November 13-14.
The following week, the committee will hold a trio of hearings. On November 19, the full Committee will convene for a hearing entitled “America for Sale? An Examination of the Practices of Private Funds.” On November 20, the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Financial Institutions (chaired by Rep. Gregory Meeks from New York) will hold a hearing entitled “An Examination of Regulators’ Efforts to Preserve and Promote Minority Depository Institutions” while, later that day, the Subcommittee on Housing, Community Development, and Insurance (chaired by Rep. William Lacy Clay from Missouri) will examine “the Current State of Residents’ Health and Safety in HUD Housing.”
Finally, on the morning of November 21, the Task Force on Financial Technology will hold a hearing entitled “Banking on Your Data: the Role of Big Data in Financial Services.” The House will then enter another district work period, with business again resuming on December 3.
