WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) was reappointed and confirmed by his colleagues today to serve on the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Development.

I am proud to rejoin the committee and look forward to working with Chairman Crapo and my colleagues to oversee and strengthen our financial system that millions of American consumers rely on.”
“As a former Committee member, Senator Moran has a deep understanding of the issues under the Banking Committee’s jurisdiction, and I welcome his experience and expertise back to the Committee,” said Chairman Crapo. “He has a proven track record of advocating for policies that will strengthen the economy, create jobs and increase America’s global competitiveness.”
