    If you write a letter, save it as a PDF.

    It can be emailed to the following senior staff of Chairman Frank: - Deputy Chief of Staff, Office of Rep. Barney Frank and - Chief of Staff, House Financial Services Committee. 

    If you prefer, you could fax it to Barney Frank’s office at 202-225-0182

    The House Financial Services Committee also has a link established for emails on the following page and suggests that letters also be sent to the Member of Congress that represents their region.

    There is an email form on the website to contact representatives. It is designed for communication from constituents within that state and attachments are not accepted through that service.

    Finally, a hard copy chould be mailed:

    The Honorable Barney Frank
    Committee on Financial Services
    U.S. House of Representatives
    Room 2128 Rayburn House Office Building
    Washington, DC 20510

    The Honorable Spencer Bachus
    Ranking Member Committee on Financial Services
    at the same address

      Free Faxing Service
      "HelloFax Makes Faxing Painless (Even without a Fax machine)," by Ryan Cordell, Chronicle of Higher Education, April 13, 2011 ---

      The very idea of faxing a document seems outdated to me. I suspect that many ProfHacker readers wouldn’t willingly fax something were there any option to submit it electronically. Nevertheless, I find myself needing a fax machine several times a year. What’s more, the things that must be faxed are, inevitably, essential documents: often tied to my finances or academic records.

      So I was thrilled when Lifehacker recently posted (yes, Lifehacker again!) about HelloFax, a service that allows you to fax documents straight from your computer. Once you register for an account with HelloFax, you simply type in the destination fax number, upload your document, sign it electronically (if you want to), and send it. HelloFax sends you an email when the fax is delivered (or if the delivery fails). When you log into HelloFax, you can see the status of all of your faxes, and resend faxes that failed.

      Since I read Lifehacker’s post, I’ve scanned and then “faxed” three separate documents using HelloFax. Each time the service was easy to use and my documents were delivered safely. With a free account you can send up to 5 pages per month (about all I ever need). HelloFax also offers paid accounts for more frequent faxers.
