Posted June 16, 2017 by CUNA Advocacy

Yesterday, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee held its confirmation hearing for Mark Green, former Member of Congress from Wisconsin, for the top spot at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).   

Credit union champions from Wisconsin were on hand for the hearing to support their home-state nominee, including Speaker Paul Ryan and Senator Tammy Baldwin who both introduced and gave glowing remarks about Mr. Green to the Committee.   

Many Committee members believe the confirmation process for Mr. Green will be smooth due to the bipartisan support he received during the hearing.  A vote for his confirmation has not yet been set, but is expected soon.
