Financial Services Committee
As a small business owner, Congressman Huizenga understands how burdensome regulations can hurt small businesses by raising costs, slowing growth, and even eliminating good-paying jobs. Dodd-Frank is a prime example of the top down "Washington knows best" type of regulation that has made it more difficult for American workers and job creators alike to achieve success. The House Financial Services Committee, has jurisdiction over Dodd-Frank, as well as issues pertaining to banking, housing, and insurance. Additionally, the committee also oversees securities and exchanges, monetary policy, international finance, and efforts to combat terrorist financing.
