House Financial Services Releases May Hearing List
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.

The legislation, the subject of subcommittee hearings last month, is intended, in part, to address unintended consequences of the derivatives provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act and to Require the Securities and Exchange Commission to conduct cost-benefit analyses of regulations. The mark up starts at 10 a.m. (ET).

The rest of the committee's hearing schedule, which is tentative at this point and may require changes, includes:

  • A May 8, 2 p.m. (ET) hearing by the subcommittee on monetary policy and trade on the reauthorization of the Defense Production Act, which has been in effect since 1950 with periodic reauthorizations;
  • 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
  • A May 16, 2 p.m. (ET) hearing by the subcommittee on housing and insurance on multi-family housing finance.
Witnesses for each hearing will be announced at later dates. These hearings will take place in Room 2128 of the Rayburn House Office Building.
