Jenkins Named to House Committee on Financial Services

By  | 

New Kansas Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins' CPA training should pay off in her new committee assignment. Jenkins was named to the House Committee on Financial Services.

The committee deals with issues ranging from banking and insurance to the housing and securities fields, as well as the volatile real estate industry.

Jenkins says she's excited about the assignment. She said in a statement Thursday that the "economy is struggling right now" and "another bailout that increases the role of the federal government and places more of a burden on taxpayers is not the right solution."

She went on to say she's committed to working with other committee members to get the recovery process rolling.
