Congressman Scott Garrett

For more than twenty years, Scott Garrett has been at the forefront of public policy deliberations dealing with issues related to the financial services industry, developing considerable expertise in areas ranging from securities and finance to insurance and regulatory oversight.

At the start of the 112th Congress, Garrett was selected to serve as the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Capital Markets and Government-Sponsored Enterprises after serving as the Ranking Member in the 111th Congress. In this role, Garrett presides over the subcommittee with jurisdiction over equity, fixed income and derivatives markets; investment advisers and broker-dealers; the secondary mortgage market; the accounting and auditing profession; and the investment fund industry. The Subcommittee also has primary oversight responsibilities for the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), the Federal Housing Finance Agency ("FHFA"), the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA"), Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board ("PCAOB").

His notable legislative achievements include easing the burden placed on small business by Sarbanes-Oxley and lessening the reliance on credit rating agencies by removing their reference in statute and regulation. He has also authored a series of bills to increase accountability and transparency at the Federal Reserve, the Financial Stability Oversight Council ("FSOC"), and the SEC. He is an advocate for fair and efficient markets that empower all Americans to achieve their financial goals.

Since his election to Congress in 2002, Garrett has consistently been one of the most active members of the House Financial Services Committee. During his tenure on the committee, Garrett has served on the Subcommittees on Capital Markets, Insurance, and Government-Sponsored Enterprises; Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit; Housing and Community Opportunity; and Oversight and Investigations.

Prior to his election to Congress, Garrett served in the New Jersey General Assembly as the Chairman of the Banking and Insurance Committee.

Garrett is a frequent guest on national television shows to discuss financial services issues, including appearances on CNBC, Fox News, Fox Business, CNN and MSNBC.  His op-eds have appeared in the Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times and he is regularly quoted in national business publications on issues related to financial services policy.
