Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will testify before the House Financial Services Committee on Oct. 23 at 10 a.m. Eastern Time, the committee announced Wednesday.
Zuckerberg will be the only witness at a hearing entitled "An Examination of Facebook and Its Impact on the Financial Services and Housing Sectors." House members had been pushing for Zuckerberg to testify on Facebook's cryptocurrency plans as the committee had been in talks with his second-in-command about testifying, CNBC reported last week.
"Mark looks forward to testifying before the House Financial Services Committee and responding to lawmakers' questions," a Facebook spokesperson said.
