(Washington, D.C.) - Representative Albio Sires (NJ-13), member of the Financial Services Committee has been assigned to the Capital Markets, Insurance, and Government Sponsored Enterprises Subcommittee and the Housing and Community Development Programs Subcommittee of the House of Representatives.

"I am proud to have a voice in areas that affect the lives of millions," said Congressman Sires. "The protection of their hard-earned money, and adequate housing costs, are key to a better future for American families."

The jurisdiction of the Capital Markets, Insurance and Government Sponsored Enterprises Subcommittee includes oversight of the U.S. banking industry, consumer credit, predatory lending, and interest rates as well as international free trade agreements.  The Housing and Community Development Programs Subcommittee includes HUD, the Department of Urban Development, which provides rental assistance for low income families, Section 8 and public housing, and makes homeownership possible for millions.

"I look forward to making a difference in the lives of our hard-working people who deserve security and accountability from our financial institutions and a place to live that they can be proud of.  I will work hard to secure financial growth and stability for our future generations," said Congressman Sires.
