WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Senate Banking Committee said on Wednesday it would vote next week on the nomination of Jay Clayton, the choice of President Donald Trump to head the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

After the panel voted on April 4, Clayton would still have to be confirmed by the full United States Senate before he can take office as SEC chairman.
