Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) announced that Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-MO-02) will lead the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee in the 115th Congress.

“I am grateful for Chairman Hensarling's trust in me to lead the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee,” said Congresswoman Wagner. “The Obama years have seen a rise of imperial Washington, D.C., with the crushing weight of regulations harming small businesses and families from the coasts to the heartland. Over the next several months and years, we will expose the damage the old administration caused to our national economy while detailing what the new and hopeful administration will do to restore the American family."

"Congresswoman Wagner is a dedicated, principled member of our Conference and has a proven track record of success as a member of this Committee,” added Chairman Hensarling. “Her determination to end burdensome regulations forced on American families and ability to shed light on unaccountable federal agencies like the CFPB will be an asset to our Committee leadership team."

In this role, Congresswoman Wagner will provide oversight of several federal agencies, including the Federal Reserve, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Treasury, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the National Credit Union Administration, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, and the Export-Import Bank.
