NEW: Senate Banking Clears Metsger Nomination For Senate Vote
WASHINGTON (7/18/13, UPDATED 12:11 p.m. ET)--Voting by voice vote, the Senate Banking Committee has cleared the nomination of Richard Metsger to move forward to the full Senate floor for a confirmation vote.

Although there is no definitive word yet on timing, Metsger's nomination is not considered to be controversial and could get a full Senate vote  before the U.S. Congress breaks in August for its Summer District Work Session.  

The committee also voted to move forward the nominations of Rep. Mel Watt (D-N.C.) to be director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, Jason Furman, to be a member and chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers; Kara Stein, Michael Piwowar, and Mary Jo White, to be members of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
