The Financial Services Committee has jurisdiction over all issues that affect the banking system, housing, insurance, and securities and exchanges. My responsibility on this Committee is to improve and strengthen regulatory processes, ensure we implement strong consumer protection standards, and monitor financial reporting tools that safeguard our national security. The Financial Services Committee is responsible for some of the most critical financial legislation over the last 20 years, including the Dodd-Frank Act, which was enacted after the 2008 Financial Crisis. 

The Financial Services Committee is working hard to implement strong, practical solutions that keep families and households safe from financial schemes, maintain market integrity, and preserve financial technology businesses' potential to innovate responsibly. 

In June 2022, I released a white paper discussing the need for a Centrally Backed Digital Currency. Along with many other benefits, the implementation of digital currency by the U.S. government could play a critical role in preserving the dollar’s role as the global reserve currency of choice. Read my proposal here.
