Posted on November 16, 2020

MARYVILLE, Tennessee, November 16, 2020 — United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement about the President’s nomination of Judy Shelton to be a Governor of the Federal Reserve Board:

“I oppose the nomination of Judy Shelton because I am not convinced that she supports the independence of the Federal Reserve Board as much as I believe the Board of Governors should. I don’t want to turn over management of the money supply to a Congress and a President who can’t balance the federal budget.”
