McWatters Rescheduled For March 13
The Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee nomination hearing for Mark McWatters to serve on the NCUA Board has been rescheduled for March 13.
The hearing, originally scheduled for March 4, was postponed due to inclement weather in the Washington, D.C. metro area. The federal government was closed on March 3 and had a delayed opening on March 4.
McWatters’ nomination to succeed Michael Fryzel as the Republican member of the three-person NCUA board was announced on Dec. 18.
The committee will consider the nomination of Dr. Stanley Fischer as vice chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. Jerome H. Powell and Lael Brainard, both nominees for members of the Federal Reserve Board, will also testify at the hearing.
Gustavo Velasquez Aguilar, the nominee for Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, will appear on the panel as well.
