Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) told Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) Tuesday that he will move to block Dr. Janet Yellen’s nomination as the next Federal Reserve Chair unless the Senate votes on his legislation which allows the Fed to be audited.

“I am writing to convey my objection to floor consideration of the nomination of Dr. Janet Yellen to Chair the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve without also considering legislation to bring much-needed transparency to the Fed,” Paul said in a letter to Reid.

‘[I] will object to any unanimous consent agreement or waiver of any rule with respect to the noimination of Dr. Yellen without a vote on S. 209,” Paul continued. “I know you have been a supporter of similar legislation in the past, and I hope that we can work together to pass this important legislation.”
