(Undated) -- The Senate Banking Committee will vote this week on Janet Yellen's nomination as chair of the Federal Reserve. The panel is expected to send Yellen's nomination on to the full Senate when it votes Thursday. If confirmed, the 67-year-old Fed vice-chair will be the first woman to lead the U.S. central bank. Current Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke's term ends in January.
