McHenry named vice chairman of House Financial Services Committee

Here’s the announcement from the office of Rep. Patrick McHenry, who represents District 10, which includes most of Asheville:

Yesterday, Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (R, NC-10) was named by House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling to serve as the Vice Chairman of the full committee for the 114th Congress.  During the 113th Congress, McHenry led the committee’s efforts to investigate racial and gender discrimination at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau while serving as the Chairman of the committee’s Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee.

“I am honored to have been selected by Chairman Hensarling to serve as his Vice Chair for the coming Congress,” McHenry said in reaction to yesterday’s announcement.  “I look forward to working with Jeb over the next two years as our Committee continues its efforts pursuing legislation that will grow our economy, create jobs, and hold Washington accountable to American taxpayers.”

McHenry has served on the Financial Services Committee since his first term in 2005.  In addition to serving as Vice Chairman of the full committee, McHenry will be a member of the Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises Subcommittee as well as the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee.
