Washington, February 5, 2016 -

WASHINGTON – House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) today announced the committee’s hearing schedule for the week of February 8.

Wednesday, February 10 at 10:00 A.M. – Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen will appear before the full committee to deliver the Federal Reserve’s semi-annual Monetary Policy Report to Congress.

The Fed Oversight Reform and Modernization Act (FORM Act), which would make the Fed more accountable and transparent, passed the House 241-185 on Nov. 19.

Media outlets interested in attending the hearing need to contact Catherine Costakos at to RSVP.

Thursday February 11 at 9:30 A.M. - The Subcommittee on Housing and Insurance will hold a hearing to examine the fiscal health of the Federal Housing Administration’s Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund.

Thursday, February 11 at 1:00 P.M.– The Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit will hold a hearing to examine the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s assault on access to credit and trampling of state and tribal sovereignty.

All hearings will take place in room 2128 of the Rayburn House Office Building. Additional information, including a list of witnesses, will be made available on the Committee’s website.
