Seven Texas Congressmen Make Key Committee Chairs
Tuesday, December 6, 2016 7:00 AM

Cornerstone Credit Union League is pleased to report that seven Texas Congressmen have been designated as chairs for key committees in the 115th U.S. Congress. They are:

Mike Conaway
Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas)
Mac Thornberry
Armed Services:
Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas)
Jeb Hensarling
Financial Services:
Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas)
Michael McCaul
Homeland Security:
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas)
Lamar Smith
Science, Space, and Technology:
Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas)
Kevin Brady
Ways and Means (the tax committee):
Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas)
Pete Sessions
Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas)

“Given CUNA and Cornerstone’s aggressive agenda for next year, it’s gratifying to see several members of the Texas House delegation as committee chairs," said Cornerstone SVP and Chief Advocacy Officer Jim Phelps. "We look forward to working with them in the new Congress to achieve regulatory relief and other priorities on behalf of Cornerstone credit unions.” 

Having so many lawmakers from the Cornerstone region is an advantageous state of affairs for credit unions and excellent incentive to attend the upcoming CUNA GAC in Washington, DC, Feb. 26-March 2. We hope our credit union leaders will join us and avail themselves of these important opportunities.

Subcommittee assignments should be set in early January 2017, and more lawmakers from the Cornerstone region could be added.
