WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, released the following statement after Rohit Chopra, nominee for Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), was successfully discharged from the Committee. His nomination will next be considered for final confirmation by the Senate.
“Americans need someone at the helm of the CFPB who is ready to stand up to the biggest banks and the most powerful corporations in order to protect consumers. Rohit Chopra has the expertise and track record to lead an agency dedicated to protecting working families and all consumers,” said Brown. “Today, he has cleared a key Senate hurdle, and I urge my colleagues to support his final confirmation.”
