As the three term Chairman of the powerful House Financial Services Committee, Jeb Hensarling helped lead the Administrations’ financial markets deregulation efforts on Capitol Hill, culminating in passage of the most pro growth banking bill in a generation. His expertise and experience into both the inner workings of Congress and the direction of financial markets regulation gives him a unique perspective.
Jeb Hensarling recently completed an eight-term career in the U.S. Congress including three terms as Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, one of congress’ most important committees, with jurisdiction over a broad swath of the nation’s economy including banking, securities, insurance, housing and monetary policy. As chairman, the Los Angeles Times said Hensarling was “a pivotal player in the GOP effort to reduce financial regulation in the Trump era” and the Wall Street Journal referred to him as “[the driver] of economic policy in the House.” Hensarling shepherded over 80 bills into law including the Economy Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act, widely recognized as the most pro-growth banking bill in a generation, as well as the JOBS 2.0 legislation which helps startups and early growth companies access capital.
Called a “major figure in the Republican Party,” Hensarling was chosen by his colleagues to serve in key leadership positions throughout his congressional career. He was elected House Republican Conference Chairman in the 112th Congress, the 4th highest ranking position in the Republican Leadership, where he was responsible for helping coordinate strategy, policy, messaging and communications for House Republicans. In the 110th Congress he led the Republican Study Committee, Congress’ largest caucus and the one dedicated to advancing conservative free market principles. His leadership in these positions caused the National Journal to write, “Hensarling is as politically savvy as they come.”
In recognition of his economic policy expertise, Hensarling was appointed to serve on the Congressional Oversight Panel for TARP, our nation’s response to the 2009 financial crisis, the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform and as the Co-Chair of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction. In observing his career, the Dallas Morning News said Hensarling “has challenged his party to live up to free-market principles.”
Chairman Hensarling’s experience across politics and business, coupled with his expertise in financial services, provides a unique perspective that educates audiences on the current state of the US economic policy and where it may be headed.
