Hester Peirce is Likely Nominee for SEC Commissioner Seat
Ms. Hester Peirce, a former SEC counsel and Senate aide, is the Trump administration’s likely choice for the open Republican seat at the Securities and Exchange Commission, according to Bloomberg News. SEC nominees must be confirmed by the Senate.
Ms. Peirce is a research fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason U. who has been sharply critical of the regulatory expansion enacted in response to the 2008 financial crisis. President Obama had nominated Ms. Peirce in 2015, but her nomination stalled in the Senate Banking Committee last year along with that of Democrat-backed law professor Lisa Fairfax.
Two names have popped up for the open Democratic Commissioner seat: Robert Jackson, a Columbia U. law professor, and Bharat Ramamurti, an aide to Senator Elizabeth Warren.
