Fyi: WASHINGTON (9/7/12)--Credit reporting issues, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) oversight and issues created by the Federal Reserve's interest rate setting practices will be among many topics of discussion when the House Financial Services Committee reconvenes next week.
The Democratic National Convention ended last night, and with that convention and the earlier Republican National Convention complete, legislators are scheduled to return to Washington. Their stay, however, will be a short one, with a weeklong congressional district work period scheduled to begin on Sept. 24.
The committee's September schedule includes:
- A Sept. 13 House financial institutions and consumer credit subcommittee hearing on credit reporting agency issues;
- A Sept. 20 full Financial Services Committee hearing to review CFPB Director Richard Cordray's semi-annual report to Congress;
- A Sept. 20 House domestic monetary policy and technology subcommittee hearing on the monetary impact of interest rates and the consequences of interest-rate setting as a Federal Reserve monetary policy tool; and
- A Sept. 13 House capital markets subcommittee/oversight and government reform subcommittee hearing on implementation of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act.
The committee has also set a Sept. 11 House subcommittee on insurance, housing and community opportunity hearing on the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act and a Sept. 14 House subcommittee on insurance, housing and community opportunity hearing about the barriers that homeless and low-income military veterans face when they attempt to secure government-funded housing assistance and services.
A Sept. 12 full committee markup session has also been scheduled, but the bill that will be marked up has not been specified yet.
