ICBA urged President Donald Trump to renominate Michelle “Miki” Bowman for a full term as a member of the Federal Reserve Board. In a letter to Trump and the heads of the Senate Banking Committee, ICBA noted that Bowman’s bipartisan confirmation was for a partial term that expires Jan. 31, 2020.
Bowman made history last fall as the first person to fill the Fed’s community banking seat, which was instituted by Congress in 2015 due to ICBA’s successful advocacy. Promptly renominating her for a full 14-year term would allow the Senate to begin the confirmation process, ICBA wrote.
Bowman has served as Kansas state bank commissioner, vice president of Farmers & Drovers Bank in Council Grove, Kan., in her family’s cattle and farm operation, and in senior positions in Congress and the executive branch.
