Fischer who was the head of the Bank of Israel and will become the Vice Chairman of the FOMC should not have a problem with the vote which requires a simple 51 vote majority.

Lael Brainard and Jerome Powell will apparently have to wait for their votes.  They are not expected to be voted on before June 2nd.

Even if Brainard and Powell join Fischer as FOMC voting members, the board will still be short two nominees. There are no nominations to date.
