ABA Applauds Senate Banking Committee Vote on Fed Nominees

“We applaud today’s bipartisan vote in the Senate Banking Committee in support of Michelle Bowman and Richard Clarida’s nominations to serve on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors.  Miki Bowman’s experience as a community banker will allow her to provide a critically important perspective as the Board of Governors continues to review the rules overseeing the nation’s banks.  In addition, Rich Clarida’s strong understanding of monetary policy and financial markets – and real-world experience in the private sector – will serve him well as vice chairman.  We urge the Senate to act quickly on their nominations, so Fed policymakers can benefit from a full range of voices and perspectives as they determine monetary and regulatory policies that are essential to economic growth.”
