Looks Like Senator Warren is Heading to the Banking Committee

Read about it here in a piece by William Alden. We discussed the possibility right after her election. Now it looks like a certainty. An excerpt from Alden's piece:

Elizabeth Warren, the Harvard professor who won a Senate seat in November, is officially
on track to join the Senate Banking Committee, after the Democratic
Steering Committee approved her assignment on Wednesday. The appointment
is subject to approval by the full Democratic caucus and a resolution
by the full Senate after it convenes in January. Ms. Warren’s role on the banking committee would give her greater
influence over laws and regulations affecting the financial industry. A
noted consumer advocate, Ms. Warren had harsh words for Wall Street
throughout her campaign, and she is expected to support tougher controls
on the industry.
