New House members poised for banking panel seats
WASHINGTON (5/30/08)--After winning recent special elections, several new members of Congress may take seats on the House Financial Services Committee. According to Congressional Quarterly, the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee recommended Financial Services assignments for these most recent election victors:
* Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) won the seat formerly held by Tom Lantos (D-Calif.), who died of cancer on Feb. 11; * Don Cazayoux (D-La.) won the seat formerly held by Republican Richard Baker, who resigned in February to join a hedge fund trade association; and * Travis W. Childers (D-Miss.) won the seat formerly held by Republican Roger Wicker, who was appointed to the Senate 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. The changes could occur after Congress returns from the Memorial Day recess. That’s when the full Democratic Caucus will vote on the nominations, reports Congressional Quarterly
