Senate Banking Committee Confirms Montgomery Nomination

Senate Banking Committee Confirms Montgomery Nomination

By a vote of 20 to 5, the Senate Banking Committee this week approved the nomination of Brian Montgomery to be the next Deputy HUD Secretary.

In addition to serving as FHA Commissioner, Montgomery has served as Acting Deputy HUD Secretary following the departure of former deputy Pam Patenaude last December. Commissioner Montgomery’s nomination now goes to the full Senate for a vote.

If confirmed, Montgomery will officially manage the day-to-day operations of HUD and advise and assist Secretary Ben Carson in leading the Department’s nearly 8,000 employees.
