Mark Warner, (D-Va.), Thom Tillis, (R-N.C.), David Perdue, (R-Ga.), Jon Tester, (D-Mont.), and Tom Carper, (D-Del.), sent a letter to Federal Reserve Board Chairman Jerome Powell pressing him to provide answers to several questions prior to any additional action being taken by the Fed in relation to the Fed’s October 2018 RFC on “actions the Federal Reserve could take to support faster payments in the United States”.
