Elizabeth Warren in line for Senate bank role
Reports described lobbyists’ opposition
Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren, one of the fiercest critics of big banks, is likely to 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 in the Senate. The pending appointment was described to the Globe by aides who requested anonymity because Senate Majority Leader Reid has not made a formal announcement.
