Dodd warns on recess appointment of Warren
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd said on Tuesday that he would not support the Obama administration using a recess appointment if it wants Elizabeth Warren to head the new consumer financial protection agency.
Dodd, who has spoken favorably of Warren's credentials but warned of a difficult confirmation process, told reporters that he has not been contacted by the White House regarding the potential nomination of Warren, a Harvard law professor who has been a watchdog over the government's bailout of the financial system.
