Senate to Vote on Brian Montgomery Nomination for HUD Assistant Secretary

After months of delay, the Senate will vote on the nomination of Brian Montgomery for HUD assistant secretary for housing and commissioner of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). Mr. Montgomery was previously approved by the Senate Banking Committee in January (See Memo, 1/22). This would be Mr. Montgomery’s second time as the FHA commissioner, having held the position under the Bush administration from 2005 to 2009.
