ABA Statement on Senate Confirmation of Federal Reserve Board Member Michelle Bowman

“As the first Federal Reserve Board member to fill the community bank seat, Michelle Bowman serves a critical role at the nation’s central bank, and we applaud her confirmation to a full 14-year term. Since joining the board last year, Gov. Bowman has provided important perspective and experience to Federal Reserve regulatory and monetary policy decisions. We appreciate her interest in community banking issues, and we look forward to continuing to work with her on policies that allow America’s banks to serve their customers and contribute to economic growth.”
