House Financial Services Committee membership is taking shape for the 116th Congress while Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) laid out her priorities for the panel.
The House Democratic caucus will need to confirm the steering committee’s recommendations of Reps. Alma Adams (N.C.), Cynthia Axne (Iowa), Sean Casten (Ill.), Madeleine Dean (Pa.), Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii), Chuy Garcia (Ill.), Sylvia Garcia (Texas), Al Lawson (Fla.), Ben McAdams (Utah), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Katie Porter (Calif.), Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), Michael San Nicolas (Guam), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), and Dean Phillips (Minn.).
Meanwhile, Republican Reps. Lance Gooden (Texas), Anthony Gonzalez (Ohio), Denver Riggelman (Va.), John Rose (Tenn.), and Bryan Steil (Wis.) have been formally named to the panel.
In her first policy speech of the new Congress, Waters said her priorities include ending the partial government shutdown, reversing Consumer Financial Protection Bureau reforms, ensuring protections for fintech consumers, passing housing-finance and fair-housing reforms, and promoting diversity and inclusion.
ICBA looks forward to working with all new and continuing members of the committee on the community banking industry’s advocacy goals.
