CBAI Urges Senator Kirk to Support Pending Fed Reserve Board Nominations

On October 2, 2015, the Community Bankers Association of Illinois (CBAI) urged Illinois Senator Mark Kirk to support two Federal Reserve Board (Board) nominations pending before the Senate Banking Committee and requested the Committee convene hearings for their consideration at the earliest possible date. The nomination of Allan Landon (former CEO of the Bank of Hawaii) fulfills a new CBAI supported mandate for community bank representation on the Board, and Kathryn Dominguez (University of Michigan Professor of Public Policy and Economics) has impressive experience and knowledge of financial markets and economic policy. These individuals will inform the Board with appropriate input for balanced deliberations and CBAI urges their swift confirmation. Read CBAI Letter.
