|WASHINGTON (5/2/13)--The May hearing schedule for the House Financial Services Committee, released Wednesday, kicks off with a May 7 mark up session by the full committee on a series of bills related to Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Act and the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act--or JOBS Act.|

- A May 15, 2 p.m. (ET) hearing by the subcommittee on capital markets and government-sponsored enterprises on the structure and costs of the GSEs;
- A May 16, 10 a.m. (ET) oversight hearing by the full committee with SEC Chair Mary Jo White; and
Witnesses for each hearing will be announced at later dates. These hearings will take place in Room 2128 of the Rayburn House Office Building.
- A May 16, 2 p.m. (ET) hearing by the subcommittee on housing and insurance on multi-family housing finance.
