Luetkemeyer Statement on Saule Omarova Nomination Withdrawal

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) Ranking Member on the Consumer Protection & Financial Institutions Subcommittee, released a statement regarding the announcement that Cornell Law Professor Saule Omarova’s nomination for Comptroller of the Currency will be withdrawn.
