House Financial Services Committee sets Sept. hearings
WASHINGTON (8/29/11)--A pair of New York, N.Y.-based field hearings on terrorist financing and the mortgage system will kick off a seven-day slate of 11 House Financial Services Committee hearings once Congress returns for its fall work period next week. The first of these hearings will take place when the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee discusses fighting terrorist financing in the post-9/11 world. That hearing will be held at the National Museum of the American Indian’s George Gustav Heye Center on Sept. 6 at 10 a.m. ET. The committee’s second New York-based hearing will also be held in the Heye Center at 10 a.m. ET on Sept. 7. That hearing, before the Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises Subcommittee, is entitled “Facilitating Continued Investor Demand in the U.S. Mortgage Market Without a Government Guarantee.” Assorted subcommittee hearings on housing, the impact of the European Union’s debt crisis on U.S. banks, broker-dealers and investment adviser oversight, and combating cybercriminals have been planned. Also on the schedule are:
* A Sept. 13 Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology Subcommittee hearing on H.R. 1098, the Free Competition in Currency Act; * A Sept. 14 Insurance, Housing and Community Opportunity Subcommittee oversight hearing on the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s housing counseling program; * A Sept. 15 committee hearing on potential Securities and Exchange Commission reforms; and * A Sept. 15 International Monetary Policy and Trade Subcommittee hearing on the impact of multi-lateral development banks on national security.
The committee said that witnesses for these hearings would be announced at later dates. For a release on the committee schedule, use the resource link.
