WASHINGTON — The Senate Banking Committee is scheduled to vote Tuesday on a stack of pending nominees to the Federal Reserve Board and other agency positions, before it proceeds with a highly anticipated vote on a bill to overhaul the housing finance system.

The banking panel will consider the nominations of Lael Brainard and Stanley Fischer to join the Fed. Fischer has also been named to take Janet Yellen's seat as vice chairman of the Board, now that she serves as chairman. The committee will also vote on the renomination of Jerome Powell, a sitting Fed governor.
