It appears that the House Financial Services Committee will have at least 11 new members, although the exact makeup of the committee has not been finalized.The Republicans have announced the selection of six new members, including Rep. Deborah Pryce of Ohio, who is stepping down from the Rules Committee and rejoining the financial services panel. The other new Republican members are Reps. Geoff Davis (Ky.), Michael Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Patrick McHenry (N.C.), Randy Neugebauer (Texas), and Tom Price (Ga.). Meanwhile, the Democratic Steering Committee has selected Reps. Al Green (Texas), Emanuel Cleaver (Mo.), Melissa Bean (Ill.), Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.), and Gwen Moore (Wis.) to serve on the committee. The committee assignments are not official until the Democratic Caucus approves them. The final makeup of the committee will be determined after Congress returns Jan. 20 for the president's inaugural. In the last Congress, the Financial Services Committee had 37 Republican members and 33 Democratic members.
