Financial Services is one of just four exclusive committees in the House. It oversees big banks, lending, & the financial sector.

Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences.

King’s district should start working to replace him in 2020. Regardless of party, it’s not good for a district if their Rep has such reprehensible views that they aren’t allowed to touch legislation with a 10 ft pole.
