NEW: Senate Moves Forward To Place Cordray As Official CFPB Head
WASHINGTON (7/16/14, UPDATE 11:45 a.m. ET)--The U.S. Senate just voted 71-29 to end the filibuster against Richard Cordray, whose nomination to officially head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has been pending since late 2011. 

The vote for final passage is all but certain at this point, and will allow Cordray to officially take on the post he has filled since Elizabeth Warren left the bureau.  Warren is now a U.S. senator from Massachusetts.
 
Cordray, a former Ohio attorney general, started at the CFPB as its enforcement director. His nomination has drawn strong opposition from many Republicans, who said they would oppose any nominee unless the CFPB's funding and leadership structures were changed.
