WASHINGTON. D.C. – This week, Congressman Frank Guinta was appointed to serve on the House Financial Services Subcommittees on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit and Monetary Policy and Trade. 

 

In this role, Guinta will serve as a voice for Granite State individuals, families and business owners in an effort to reign in harmful regulations preventing families and businesses from gaining access to capital to create more jobs and attain homeownership; and, also, increase oversight and accountability to bloated financial agencies, such as the CFPB. 

 

“Small business supports over 90% of the Granite State’s economy.  As a member of the Financial Services Committee, I will have the unique opportunity to serve as a direct voice for middle class Granite Staters and small businesses by crafting legislation to reign in harmful regulations that are suffocating business growth, jobs and profits, while acting to increase oversight of powerful financial regulators, like the CFPB.” 

 

The House Financial Services Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit oversees all financial regulators, such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC,) and all matters pertaining to consumer credit, access to financial services and the safety and soundness of the banking system.

 

The House Financial Services Subcommittee on Monetary Policy and Trade oversees policies and legislation pertaining to agencies such as the Federal Reserve, the U.S. Mint, World Bank and International Monetary Fund to promote economic stability domestic and internationally.

WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta released the following statement after passage of H.R. 240 which reverses the President’s unilateral, executive orders on amnesty, enhances border security, provides for stringent oversight, increases transparency within the Department of Homeland Security and bolsters immigration customs enforcement:

 

“In the Granite State, we believe deeply in the rule of law and the system of checks and balances.  Unfortunately, the President’s unlawful executive orders run counter to this.  I made a promise to Granite Staters to uphold our Constitution and work diligently to strengthen and reform our broken immigration system.  The passage of H.R. 240 is a common-sense first step in modernizing our system to reward those who enter our borders the lawfully while holding those whom break our laws accountable.”

US Rep Frank Guinta (NH CD-1) - STATEMENT ON HOUSE PASSAGE OF KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE 

banner

WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta released the following statement applauding the bipartisan passage of H.R. 3 – the Keystone XL Act – in the House of Representatives today:

 

“The House of Representatives acted in true bipartisan fashion this week passing three pieces of legislation reflecting what the people of our nation have sent us to Washington to do – create more jobs and strengthen our middle class and economy.  An overwhelming majority of Americans support this project because it creates over 40,000 jobs and curbs our reliance on unstable foreign oil sources by moving up to 830,000 barrels of oil per day. There are absolutely no more excuses for the Obama Administration to continue to stall this bipartisan and bicameral project.”
