Elizabeth Warren in line for Senate bank role

Reports described lobbyists’ opposition

Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren, one of the fiercest critics of big banks, will probably be named to the Senate Banking Committee when she joins Congress next month, according to two Senate aides.

The appointment has not been formally announced by Senate leaders and will not be final until an official vote on assignments by the members. The pending appointment was described to the Globe by aides who requested anonymity because Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, has not made a formal announcement.
