Her argument that it's critical to "act big" now with emergency deficit spending to avoid long-term "scarring" in the economy was rejected by Republican lawmakers voicing concerns about rising debt.
Yellen also said during her confirmation hearing that she would conduct an immediate review of US financial sanctions policy administered by Treasury to ensure that they were used "strategically and appropriately" after a major ramp-up of such measures under the Trump administration.
Yellen's confirmation less than a week after Biden took office is quick by recent standards. The nomination will head to the Senate floor for a final confirmation vote.
