ABA Statement on Today's Fed Board Nominations

“We congratulate Michelle Bowman and Richard Clarida on their nominations to serve on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. 
 
“It’s essential to have someone on the Federal Reserve Board with community banking experience, and President Trump made an excellent choice in Miki Bowman.  Her background both as a fifth generation banker and a state regulator in Kansas will provide the Federal Reserve with valuable perspective as the Board sets monetary and regulatory policy. 
 
“Rich Clarida is an ideal choice to serve as vice chairman. He is a widely respected economist with a keen understanding of monetary policy and financial markets. As a former colleague of mine in the Treasury Department, I also know Rich is a dedicated public servant who will work well with his Board colleagues.
 
“We urge the Senate to quickly consider their nominations.”
