The Federal Reserve Board should be up to full strength by today.

The Senate Banking Committee on Wednesday approved the nomination of Alan Greenspan to a third four-year term as the Fed's chairman.

An aide to Senate Banking Committee Chairman Alfonse D'Amato, R-N.Y., said the Senate was expected to confirm the nominations before leaving this evening for a two-week recess.
