McHenry was the Vice Chairman of the Committee under Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), who is leaving Congress at the end of this session. With majority control of the House of Representatives shifting to the Democrats, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), the current ranking member, will become the Committee’s next Chairperson.
 
“In the two years ahead, I look forward to working with my colleagues—both Republicans and Democrats alike—to produce innovative solutions that increase access to banking services and credit for all Americans,” Rep. McHenry said in a statement. “In addition, I will work in close consultation with the Trump Administration to ensure their ongoing regulatory relief efforts continue.”
 
Separately, one of the highest profile freshmen members of the new Congress, Rep.-Elect Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) told The Hill that she was interested in being seated on the Financial Services Committee. While it is uncommon for new members of the House to gain a seat on that Committee, Ocasio-Cortez insisted that it was worth pursuing.
 
"I think with our district, we can be ambitious, so we're kind of swinging for the fences on committees," Ocasio-Cortez said. "We might as well ask for something big."
