Last week, the House Financial Services Committee met for the first time, and although there were behind the scene efforts to increase the comity of the committee – with many of the members meeting for an impromptu dinner – it remains unclear if such efforts will be successful as less than an hour into the hearing Ranking Members Waters and Chairman Hensarling appeared to engage in a sharp exchange.
