March 13 is McWatters nomination hearing
WASHINGTON (3/5/14)--The Senate Banking Committee has rescheduled its hearing on National Credit Union Administration nominee Mark McWatters, and others, for March 13.
 
The hearing was postponed from March 4 due to a storm that hit the nation's capital with six inches of snow.
 
In addition to President Obama's pick for the NCUA, the committee will hear testimony from these other nominees: Stanley Fischer, as a member and vice chairman of the Federal Reserve Board; Jerome Powell, as Federal Reserve Board governor; Lael Brainard, as a Fed governor; and Gustavo Aguilar, to be an assistant secretary for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
 
The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. (ET).  All hearings are webcast live from the Senate Banking Committee's website. See resource link.
