On July 18, 2017, President Donald Trump announced his intent to nominate Ms. Hester Maria Peirce as a Commissioner of the Securities and Exchange Commission for the remainder of a five-year term expiring June 5, 2020. This would be President Trump’s second nomination to the SEC, the first being the nomination of Mr. Jay Clayton as Chair of the SEC in January 2017. If confirmed, Ms. Peirce would occupy one of the remaining two vacant Commissioner seats at the SEC.
