WASHINGTON – Today, House Committee on Financial Services Chairman Jeb Hensarling (TX-05) announced that Congressman French Hill (AR-02), who serves as Committee Whip, would serve on the Subcommittee on Capital Markets, Securities and Investment, Subcommittee on Monetary Policy and Trade, and Subcommittee on Terrorism and Illicit Finance. Following the announcement, Congressman Hill stated:
“I appreciate the Chairman assigning me to these three important subcommittees. Our Committee has a full plate in the coming two years to promote a sound financial system and remove the barriers that bad regulations like Dodd-Frank have created for entrepreneurs and small businesses seeking the credit and capital necessary for economic growth and job creation. Being successful in these endeavors will require good subcommittee work.
“We also learned over the past two years that the Committee’s expertise in the global financial system plays a critically important role in understanding and cutting off the finances for terrorists and other illicit actors, and I look forward to continuing my role in this national security priority.”
