U.S. Rep. Leonard Lance (R-Clinton) today announced that he has been appointed to the House Financial Services Committee.
“This assignment will allow me to work immediately as a member of the House Committee that will directly address the historic financial crisis facing our country,” said Lance in a release. “I am extremely honored and pleased to be a new member of the House Financial Services Committee, and I look forward to using my experience to advocate for fiscal responsibility in Washington and deliver economic relief and reform to New Jersey’s working families and their counterparts across the country.”
The Financial Services Committee oversees all components of the nation’s housing and financial services sectors including banking, insurance, real estate and securities. Sworn in with Lance as a freshman congressman on Tuesday, U.S. Rep. John Adler (D-Cherry Hill) also received an appointment to the House Financial Services Committee.
