"The Senate Banking Committee will consider the nomination of Christy Goldsmith Romero to chair the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. on July 11, the panel announced.

Goldsmith Romero, who currently sits on the board of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, was just recently announced as the Biden administration's pick to lead the FDIC in the wake of a workplace misbehavior scandal at the agency.

The committee, in the same hearing, will also consider the nominations of Caroline Crenshaw to be a member of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Kristin Johnson to be assistant secretary of financial institutions at the Treasury Department and Gordon Ito to be a member of the Financial Stability Oversight Council with expertise in insurance."
