 Congressman Van Taylor said, “Texas’ Third Congressional District is home to hundreds of financial services companies who support more than 45,000 jobs in our community.

This is a huge win for our District and I'm excited to get to work."

Ranking Member Patrick McHenry said, "Congressman Van Taylor’s experience in the financial services sector will make him a valuable addition to our Committee. Having represented Collin County first in the Texas state legislature and now in the House, he understands the important role the financial services industry plays in our communities. I look forward to working alongside Van in this new capacity."

Congressman Taylor brings his extensive experience and knowledge, having previously worked in real estate finance as well as community banking. During his eight years in the Texas Legislature, Taylor served on the Insurance Committee in the Texas House of Representatives.

A 7th generation Texan, Congressman Van Taylor is a dedicated family man, successful businessman, and decorated Marine Officer.
