Committee Hearing Schedule Week of July 21
July 18, 2014 -
House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) today announced the committee’s hearing schedule for the week of July 21st:
Wednesday, July 23 at 10:00 A.M.- A full committee hearing to assess the impact of the Dodd-Frank Act four years after it was signed into law.
During an interview on CNBC’s Squawk on the Street yesterday regarding Dodd-Frank’s upcoming fourth anniversary, Chairman Hensarling said “…at the end of the day Dodd-Frank has ensured that the big banks have gotten bigger, the small banks have gotten fewer, the taxpayers have gotten poorer, and our economy is less robust.”
Thursday, July 24 at 10:00 A.M.- As part of the Committee’s continuing oversight of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises Subcommittee will hold a hearing with Keith Higgins, Director of the SEC's Division of Corporation Finance, to review the SEC’s rule proposals to implement the JOBS Act and the Dodd-Frank Act, proxy advisory firms, as well as Chair Mary Jo White’s call for a holistic review of public company disclosure.
All hearings will take place in Room 2128 of the Rayburn House Office Building and will be live streamed on the committee’s website: http://financialservices.house.gov/.
