November 18, 2010

HamiltonPalmer C. Hamilton, a partner in the firm's Government Relations Practice Group, was quoted in an article published by The Birmingham News on al.com titled "Bachus Faces House Duel for Banking Panel Reins." Representative Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.) is facing a challenge for the position of chairman of the House Financial Services Committee from a fellow Republican.  However, Bachus appears to have the upper hand with the recent endorsement of the Republican leaders of the panel's six subcommittees.  Mr. Hamilton stated "the fact that all of the subcommittee ranking members got in behind him [Bachus] sent a pretty strong statement of support. They're the ones in the hearings and the markups and day-in and day-out have the greatest knowledge, and they are comfortable with and support Spencer."
