Shelton nomination doesn't advance as Brooks gets OCC nod
Judy Shelton's Federal Reserve Board nomination failed to advance in the Senate as supportive Republican Sens. Charles Grassley (Iowa) and Rick Scott (Fla.) quarantined due to COVID-19 exposure. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) voted "no" in the 47-50 vote, allowing him to try to advance the nomination again later.
Also Tuesday, President Donald Trump announced his intent to nominate Brian Brooks for a five-year term as comptroller of the currency, though the Senate has limited time left this year to confirm new nominations.
