Washington, DC – Congressman Elijah E. Cummings, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, will be honored as the “Federal Champion of the Year” by the Maryland Consumer Rights Coalition. The award will be given today in Columbia, MD.

Cummings will receive the honor for his efforts to address the foreclosure crisis and promote the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a financial agency that protects families from unfair, deceptive, and abusive financial practices.

Cummings has been at the forefront of congressional efforts to investigate abuses by mortgage servicing companies and work with housing regulators to implement reforms that will keep more Americans in their homes. In February, Cummings launched a major investigation of the foreclosure crisis, seeking documents from 11 of the nation’s top servicers regarding mortgage abuses.
