Himes Takes On Subcommittee Chairmanship
Connecticut congressman Jim Himes has been promoted to be the next chair of the House subcommittee on National Security, International Development and Monetary Policy. He was previously a member of the panel. Among other things, Himes says his committee will focus on protecting the U.S. financial system from attack. Some of that work might overlap with Himes' other assignment on the Intelligence Committee. Himes serves Connecticut's fourth district.
