Washington
House banking panel gets three new members
WASHINGTON (6/12/08)—House Democrats voted to approve three recently elected representatives for seats on the House Financial Services Committee. The committee appointments included a Louisianan, Rep. Don Cazayoux, who was backed during his special election by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and the Louisiana CU League. CULAC, CUNA's political action committee , contributed $5,000 to Cazayoux's campaign. Cazayoux's narrow victory, winning 49% - 46% over Republican Woody Jenkins, was the subject of broad national attention. The victory placed into the hands of Democrats a Louisiana seat that long had been held by the GOP. Cazayoux now fills the seat left vacant by the resignation of Richard Baker in February. Also elected to the financial services panel by the House Democratic Caucus Tuesday were:
* Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) who won the seat formerly held by Tom Lantos (D-Calif.), who died of cancer on Feb. 11; and * Rep. Travis W. Childers (D-Miss.), who won the seat formerly held by Republican Roger Wicker, who was appointed his governor to fill a vacated Senate seat in December.
Earlier this year, U.S. Reps. Bill Foster (D-Ill.) and André Carson (D-Ind.) were appointed to the House Financial Services Committee.
