The House Republican conference December 7 selected Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.) to serve as ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee. Bachus' selection came at the expense of Rep. Richard Baker (R-La.) who had seniority on the panel. Bachus added that he looks forward to working with incoming House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.), with whom he has a "long history of mutual respect and cooperation in those areas where we can find common ground. Barney Frank and I represent very different political philosophies, but when we disagree, we do so amicably," said Bachus.
