WASHINGTON (6/23/09)--Herbert Allison, the former Fannie Mae CEO who was nominated to run the Troubled Asset Relief Program, was confirmed last week by the U.S. Senate. As Assistant Secretary for Financial Stability, Allison is now responsible for developing and coordinating Treasury's policies on legislative and regulatory issues affecting financial stability, including overseeing the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). Allison is also Counselor to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.
