NCUA, FHFA nomination hearings expected next week

The Senate Banking Committee announced its plans to hold nomination hearings for key posts at the NCUA and the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) next week.

Scheduled for Feb. 14, the hearing will consider nominees Todd Harper and Rodney Hood to be members of the NCUA Board, and Dr. Mark Calabria to be director of the FHFA. If advanced out of committee, the nominees will face a confirmation vote by the full Senate.

The hearing is set for 10:00 a.m. Eastern Thursday, and can be livestreamed via the Senate Banking Committee’s website.

President Donald Trump recently nominated Todd Harper to the NCUA Board. Harper previously served as the director of public and congressional affairs and chief policy advisor to the chairman at the NCUA. If confirmed, he will fill a six-year term that expires in 2021; Harper would fill a board seat previously held by former NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz, who left the board in April 2016.
