WASHINGTON, June 20 (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate voted on Thursday to confirm Allison Lee to serve as a commissioner at the Securities and Exchange Commission, bringing the markets regulator back to full strength.
By a voice vote, the Senate confirmed Lee to the post, where she will fill a vacant Democratic seat on the five-member commission.
Lee spent several years in senior roles at the SEC from 2005 to 2018, including time as an enforcement attorney. She most recently served as counsel to Commissioner Kara Stein, who left the agency in January. (Reporting by Pete Schroeder Editing by Tom Brown)
