WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement after Janet Yellen was confirmed by the Senate as the next Chair of the Federal Reserve:

“I join in congratulating Janet Yellen on her confirmation as the next Chair of the Federal Reserve.  The Senate’s confirmation not only shatters a glass ceiling but will ensure that the next head of the Federal Reserve will be an experienced economist who will continue the work of her predecessor to leverage monetary policy skillfully in order to stabilize inflation and promote maximum employment as our economy continues to recover.  I look forward to working with her as she begins her historic tenure.”
