In the 115th Congress, I have the honor of serving on both the Subcommittee on Capital Markets, Securities, and Investment and the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. As Chairman of Oversight and Investigations, I 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.

I am honored to work on a committee which holds such great importance for Missouri’s 2nd Congressional District.
