Congresswoman Joyce Beatty

Representing the 3rd District of Ohio

Financial Services and Consumer Protection

 

Beatty's Focus on Financial Services and Consumer Protections

As a senior Member of the Financial Services Committee and Member of the Joint Economic Committee, I am fighting to ensure an economy and financial services system that works for ALL Americans.

Highlights of Beatty Work on Financial Services and Consumer Protection

  • Co-Chair of the House Financial and Economic Literacy Caucus.
  • Authored the Financial Literacy College Education Act to establish best practices to teach financial literacy at institutions of higher education. The bill was signed into law in the 115th Congress.
  • Passed the Free Credit Scores for Consumers Act out of the Financial Services Committee to provide consumers with free access to their credit scores.
  • One of the lead Democrats on the Consumers First Act, a bill to make sure consumers’ interests are placed before the interests of corporations.
  • Leader on efforts to ensure the Treasury Department places Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill.
