Maxine Waters Welcomes President’s Nomination of White to Head SEC
Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee, today welcomed President Obama's nomination of Mary Jo White to be the next chairman of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), stating:
I offer my congratulations to Mary Jo White on being nominated to chair the SEC. Ms. White has had a very distinguished record serving as U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York. This very important position will afford her the opportunity to demonstrate the same energy and commitment in carrying out the SEC's mandate to implement Wall Street reform while strongly enforcing investor protections and the nation's securities laws.
