Senate confirms more than 60 Obama nominees
Senators confirmed more than 60 Obama administration nominees Tuesday after months of disagreement on how to proceed with the confirmation of picks for the National Labor Relations Board.
Settling a dispute that began before the May recess, Senators approved NLRB Democratic nominee Mark Pearce and Republican Brian Hayes. But they did not vote to confirm Craig Becker, a former labor union lawyer given a recess appointment to NLRB by President Obama in March.
The decision means Becker may have to step down in late 2011 when his recess appointment ends.
Others earning Senate approval Tuesday include Don Cazayoux, a former Louisiana Democratic congressman tapped to serve as U.S. Marshal for the Pelican State. Several federal judges, U.S. attorneys, nominees for federal boards, councils and commissions and deputy and assistant positions at the departments of Defense, Health and Human Services also earned confirmations.
