Senator Coons statement on FDIC nominee

WILMINGTON, Del. - U.S. Senator Chris Coons (D-Del.) released the following statement today regarding President Biden's nomination of Christy Goldsmith Romero to be the next Chair of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC):

"I welcome President Biden's nomination of Christy Goldsmith Romero to serve as the next Chair of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. During her decade of experience as the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program, Goldsmith Romero led efforts to oversee and strengthen distressed financial institutions. More recently, as a Commissioner at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, she has advanced the integrity and resilience of U.S. markets. Goldsmith Romero has the experience and expertise needed to lead the FDIC, and I call on my colleagues in the Senate to quickly approve her nomination."
