Congressman Marlin Stutzman has been named to serve on the House Financial Services Committee for the 113th Congress beginning in January.
"The finance industry has a proud history in northeast Indiana and I look forward to taking Hoosier perspectives to the Financial Services Committee," says Stutzman. "With our national economy struggling, many Hoosiers looking for work and small businesses fighting to keep their doors open, I look forward to using this new committee assignment to help end the era of bailouts and over-regulation."
The House Financial Services Committee has jurisdiction over issues pertaining to the economy, the banking system, housing, insurance and securities and exchanges. Additionally, the committee also has jurisdiction over monetary policy, international finance, international monetary organizations and efforts to combat terrorist financing.
The committee is responsible for oversight of the Federal Reserve Board and individual reserve banks, the Treasury, the production and distribution of currency and the nation's capital markets.
Stutzman has named Matt Lloyd as his new chief of staff.
Lloyd most recently served as communications director in Governor-elect Mike Pence's congressional office, a role he held for nearly 10 years. He also served as communications director on Pence's gubernatorial campaign for a year prior to serving as senior communications advisor.
Prior to working for Pence, Lloyd served in various communications roles in the Bush Administration and for U.S. Congressmen Kevin Brady, of Texas, and Rick Hill, of Montana.
