The Senate banking committee is scheduled to vote Tuesday, Feb. 26, on the NCUA board nominations of Rodney Hood and Todd Harper.

“The confirmation vote could be an indication that the Senate intends to move quickly on the nominations, which have attracted no visible opposition,” according to CU Times.

Assuming the committee advances the nominations, the full Senate will vote on the nominees on a later date.

Harper, a Democrat, will serve the remainder of a six-year term expiring April 10, 2021. He will replace outgoing board member Rick Metsger, whose term expired in August 2017. Harper is NCUA’s former head of the Office of Public and Congressional Affairs and served as the chief policy advisor to the chairman at the agency.

As previously reported, Trump also nominated Rodney Hood, a former member and vice chairman of the NCUA board, for a seat on the board. Hood, a Republican, now serves as a corporate responsibility manager for JPMorgan Chase, “where he manages national partnerships with groups that work on community development, civil rights and with the disabled community,” according to CU Times.

Additional developments on the confirmation proceedings will be reported in The New York Minute.
