The House Financial Services Committee and the Small Business Committee have rescheduled for Feb. 26 their joint hearing on the state of small business and commercial real estate.

The financial services panel also said it will hold its semiannual hearing on monetary policy on Wednesday, and a hearing on executive compensation on Thursday.
