Rep. Barry Loudermilk to be Only Georgian on Financial Service Committee
January 13, 2017
(Cartersville Patch) - The House Republicans have selected Rep. Barry Loudermilk to serve on the Financial Services Committee in the 115th Congress.
Rep. Loudermilk, a Republican representing Georgia's 11th Congressional District, will be the only Georgia Republican Congressman on this critically important panel.
The Financial Services Committee focuses on financial independence and job creation. Aiming for a free and growing marketplace, the committee has jurisdiction over the banking system, credit unions, consumer credit, insurance, securities, housing, monetary policy, and many other important issues.
“When bad regulation helped to create a financial crisis a decade ago, Congress tried to fix the problem with more bad regulation,” said Loudermilk, who lives in Bartow County. “As a result, these overbearing federal regulations have stifled job growth, expanded unemployment, restricted business expansion, and caused millions of Americans to be underpaid and underemployed. With the exciting changes taking place in Washington, we now have a tremendous opportunity to repeal overreaching government regulations and replace them with a system that promotes investment, encourages expansion, and stimulates growth and prosperity. I am excited for the opportunity to join a committee willing to tackle these hard issues and push reforms that will create jobs, expand business, and create opportunity for all Americans.”
