WASHINGTON, April 4 The U.S. Senate Banking
Committee voted on Tuesday to advance Jay Clayton's nomination
as the next head of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
to the full Senate for approval.
The committee voted 15 to 8, with some Democrats including
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and Sherrod Brown of Ohio
voting against him amid concerns about his close ties to Wall
Street through his career as a deal-making attorney for the law
firm Sullivan & Cromwell.
