Se­nate ap­proves Trump’s pick for con­sumer pro­tec­tion agency

USA TODAY US Edition - - NEWS | OPINION -

In a 50-49 party-line vote, the Se­nate ap­proved Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s nom­i­nee to run the Con­sumer Fi­nan­cial Pro­tec­tion Bureau, end­ing a six-month bat­tle Thurs­day.

Kathy Kraninger, a mi­dlevel of­fi­cial in the White House’s bud­get of­fice, has no ex­pe­ri­ence in fi­nan­cial ser­vices and has never run a fed­eral agency, a crit­i­cism that made Democrats hos­tile to her nom­i­na­tion since day one.
