DODD AND GREGG ISSUE JOINT STATEMENT EXPRESSING CONFIDENCE THAT BERNANKE WILL WIN CONFIRMATION VOTE

January 23, 2010

WASHINGTON – Today, Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd (D-CT) and Banking Committee Member Judd Gregg (R-NH) issued a joint statement on their confidence that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke will be confirmed by the Senate for a second term.
 
“In the last few days there have been a flurry of media reports on Chairman Bernanke’s confirmation prospects, highlighting a very vocal opposition.  Chairman Bernanke has done an excellent job responding to one of the most significant financial crises our country has ever encountered.  We support his nomination because he is the right leader to guide the Federal Reserve in this recovering economy.  Based on our discussions with our colleagues, we are very confident that Chairman Bernanke will win confirmation by the Senate for a second term.”
