Financial Services issues affect us all and how they are dealt with is important to my work in Congress
Prior to being elected to Congress, I worked in community banking for seven years. I am a firm believer that less government regulation is better, especially when it comes to the economy. I have been, and will continue to be, an advocate for free market principles. I oppose legislation such as the Dodd-Frank Act, which increased the federal government’s involvement in financial institutions.
I am cosponsoring H.R. 3461, the Financial Institutions Examination Fairness and Reform Act because this legislation addresses some concerns regarding the disconnect between federal regulators based in Washington and examiners in the field. This bill seeks to improve the timeliness of examinations, adherence to examination standards, and the current appeals process.
For more information concerning my work and views on Financial Services issues, please contact my Washington, DC office.
I look forward to your feedback.
