“Congressman Denny Heck Named to House Financial Services Committee”
“In a rare appointment for a freshman Member of Congress, Congressman Denny Heck has been selected by his colleagues to serve on the House Financial Services Committee. The Committee is one of only four exclusive committees in the Housethe other three being Appropriations, Ways and Means and Energy and Commerce.”
“Due to the expansive list of policy concerns that fall within the Committees jurisdiction, Members who serve on one of the four exclusive committees are not permitted to serve on other House committees. As such, the Congressman will give up his seat on the House Budget Committee, which is a non-exclusive committee, to accept this high-profile appointment. Only six other members of the 49 member freshman Democratic class were named to an exclusive committee,” quoting Rep. Heck’s website.
