Matz’s nomination hearing will take place before the Senate Banking Committee at 3 p.m. on Wedensday. If, as is expected, she is onfirmed, Matz would serve on the NCUA board for a second time. The President has said he intends to designate her as chairman.

The House will also discuss regulatory perspectives on the current financial regulatory reform proposals on Wednesday and Friday, with Securities and Exchange Commission Chair Mary Shapiro and U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission Chairman Gary Gensler scheduled to testify on Wednesday. Federal Reserve Board Chair Ben Bernanke on Tuesday will testify on the semiannual monetary report before the House Financial Services Committee, with similar testimony before the Senate Banking Committee scheduled for Wednesday.
