Wednesday's Hearing with Fed Vice Chairman Quarles

As Congress returned to session for the first time since the election, I was back at work at the House Financial Services Committee. At our hearing On Wednesday, I had the opportunity to question the Federal Reserve's Vice Chairman for Supervision Randal Quarles on the recent changes to the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review stress tests. In addition, I questioned Fed Vice Chairman Quarles on the need for new technology to help address the challenges banks are facing today.

National Entrepreneurs' Day

On Tuesday, November 20th, join me in celebrating all of the entrepreneurs that make the Tenth District such a wonderful place to call home. From our innovative textile manufacturers to our delicious microbreweries thousands of jobs have been created by local entrepreneurs. Additionally, they have had a remarkable economic impact on communities all across western North Carolina. I am thankful for all of our local entrepreneurs’ hard work and for everything they do for the Tenth District.

This year's White House Christmas tree was almost abandoned, its grower admits

Charlotte Observer

The White House has already begun preparing for the holiday season by picking this year's official White House Christmas tree, which will be the centerpiece of the White House's Blue Room holiday decoration. This year it comes from a farm right here in Avery County, North Carolina, which I used to represent. North Carolina has had more trees stand in the Blue Room than any other state.
