Otting takes step closer to head OCC

The confirmation of Joseph Otting to become permanent Comptroller of the Currency took a step closer Wednesday with the Senate voting 54-44 toward a final vote on his nomination.

Otting, 58, was nominated by President Donald Trump in June; his confirmation was recommended by the Senate Banking Committee (on a 13-10 vote) in early September.

When confirmed, he will replace Acting Comptroller Keith Noreika, who has been in office since May.
