The US Senate approved Yellen’s nomination for Treasury Secretary on the 25th with 84 votes in favor and 15 votes against, making the 74 year old Yellen the first female Treasury Secretary in the United States.

On Friday, the Senate Finance Committee unanimously approved Yellen’s nomination for treasury secretary, which was voted on Monday. Yellen will push Biden’s $1.9 trillion economic stimulus package. She said in the confirmation hearing earlier that rapid action must be taken, or the United States will face the risk of a painful and long economic recession.
