New Ranking Members Named For House Financial Services Subcommittees
WASHINGTON -- Following the death of House Financial Services Committee Member Paul Gillmor (R-Ohio), Committee Ranking Member Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.) announced two new ranking member positions.
Gillmor, who died Sept. 5 from a fall down the stairs according to reports, was the ranking member on the Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Subcommittee. Congresswoman Judy Biggert (R-Ill.) will fill that vacancy. "It would be impossible to truly fill the large shoes left by my late friend, Paul Gillmor, but I hope as to live up to his good example of hard work and bipartisan cooperation," Biggert said.
