Senate approves Powell for fresh term at the Fed

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Senate on Thursday confirmed Federal Reserve Governor Jerome Powell to a fresh term on the U.S. central bank's board.

Powell, who has served at the Fed since May 2012, was approved for a fresh term that would carry until January 2028.

The one-time investment banker said earlier this month that the time was not yet ripe to consider raising U.S. interest rates given the "significant amount of slack in the labor market."
