Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday teed up two of President Joe Biden’s four Federal Reserve Board nominees for votes by the full chamber later this month. 

Schumer took a procedural step before the Senate leaves for a two-week break seeking to limit debate on Lael Brainard’s nomination for vice chair, as well as Lisa Cook’s nomination for Fed governor when lawmakers return.
