No Becker Recess Appointment, At Least Not This Recess


Or at least that would seem to be the most likely course of action based on a statement released by President Obama after the Senate confirmed 27 appointments by voice vote before leaving for the week long's President's Day Holiday. Senate Confirms 27 Obama Nominees . From the White House:
While this is a good first step, there are still dozens of nominees on hold who deserve a similar vote, and I will be looking for action from the Senate when it returns from recess. If they do not act, I reserve the right to use my recess appointment authority in the future.
Although I could have easily missed someone, it appears that the only labor and employment related appointment in the group confirmed was Cynthia L. Attwood, of Virginia, as a member of the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission.
