Congressman Dennis Ross, (R-FL) recently began his fourth term and was tapped earlier this week as vice-chair of the U.S Housing and Insurance (H&I) Subcommittee, which is under the umbrella of the U.S. House Financial Services Committee (FSC). Ross has served on both the committee and the subcommittee.

Ross’ office noted the subcommittee “has primary jurisdiction over insurance generally including the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), public and private housing, urban development, the Rural Housing Service, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Government Sponsored Enterprises, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, and the Federal Housing Administration.”

“I am honored to be appointed vice-chair of the Housing and Insurance Subcommittee so I can continue my efforts to promote a thriving housing and insurance market for Floridians and all Americans,” said Ross. “This subcommittee will consider legislation and provide vital oversight of federal agencies that impact Florida families on a daily basis. I am excited to get to work.”
