Excerpt from Leading the Past Week -

Although there were several hearings and major implementations of Dodd-Frank rules, the leading story from the past week had to be Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) filing cloture on seven Administration nominees, including Richard Cordray to continue as head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). This is the start of a process that could end up with Leader Reid going for the “nuclear option” of changing the Senate rules dealing with the filibuster of certain nominations. Based on some reports, it appears that Reid has the votes and that Cordray may be the sticking point in the negotiations. Interestingly, late last week Chairman Tim Johnson (D-SD) and the eleven other Democratic Members of the Banking Committee, wrote Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to end the Republican filibuster of Cordray’s nomination, requesting “an up-or-down vote on the nominee’s merits.”
