The Senate confirmed by voice vote on Thursday Allison Herren Lee to serve as a commissioner on the Securities and Exchange Commission.
President Donald Trump announced on April 2 that he had nominated Lee, who served at the SEC from 2005 to 2018 in various roles including senior counsel in the Complex Financial Instruments Unit, and as counsel to former Commissioner Kara Stein.
Lee, a Democrat, will serve a term expiring June 5, 2022.
The SEC now has a full slate of commissioners. However, SEC Commissioner Robert Jackson, the other Democrat on the commission, plans to head back to New York University’s law school for the fall semester.
