Financial Services

I have the distinct privilege of serving on the United States House of Representatives Committee on Financial Services, which oversees the nation’s financial industry including banking, insurance, capital markets, and housing.  In addition, the Committee oversees the Federal Reserve, Department of Treasury, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), as well as other federal regulators.  I also serve on two Subcommittees under the Financial Services Committee:  the Subcommittee on Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises, and the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations.

The St. Louis region is a national hub for the financial services industry, with over 84,000 people employed in insurance, banking, real estate, or other business lines throughout the region.  I am honored to work on a committee which holds such great importance for Missouri’s 2nd Congressional District.
