SEC Chair Nomination

NPR's Jack Speer reports on the rumored nomination of Washington lawyer Harvey Pitt to the position of chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The 56-year-old Pitt spent several years as general counsel at the SEC during the Carter administration. If the nomination is officially announced by the Bush administration, it will require approval by the Senate Banking Committee before going to the full Senate for a vote.
