WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) – member of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs – today released the following statement after the Senate confirmed Kansan Michelle ‘Miki’ Bowman on a 60-31 vote to serve on the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System for a full, 14-year term:
“Miki Bowman has distinguished herself as an important leader in the banking community. In her short time on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, she has already brought a critical perspective to our nation’s monetary policy with experience as both a community banker and supervisor of community banks. I know that Miki will continue to give a voice to the ag community and rural America, and I am pleased the Senate confirmed her to a full term.”
Bowman – a Washburn University School of Law graduate and Council Grove native – joined the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System as the Community Bank Representative in November of 2018 and has represented Region 8, which holds jurisdiction over St. Louis, Mo., for the remainder of a 14-year term expiring January 31, 2020. The nomination passed by the Senate today is for a full term of 14 years beginning on February 1, 2020.
