Press Release

Washington, D.C.- Congressman Jesús “Chuy” García (IL-04) released the following statement after his appointment to the House Financial Services and Transportation and Infrastructure Committees:

“An appointment to the powerful House Financial Services Committee ensures that the Chicagoans I represent will have a voice in shaping important banking and housing policy. As a member of the committee, I plan to address unfair lending practices and decades-long, racial injustice issues that disproportionately bar low-income families and communities of color from homeownership and financial security.

I am committed to bringing much needed economic development and investment to Chicago’s aging roadways, airports, railways and transit network, especially for communities long underserved. An appointment to the House Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure enables me to advocate for the urgent transit and infrastructure challenges facing Chicago and the Midwest.”
