NLRB Board Member Craig Becker’s Nomination for a Full Term Rejected Again

On August 5, 2010, the U.S. Senate, by unanimous consent, confirmed the nominations of scores of President Obama’s appointments to various agencies.  However, the nomination of Craig Becker to a term ending in December 2014 on the National Labor Relations Board was sent back to the White House.  Mr. Becker, who received a recess appointment to the NLRB in April, 2010, will have to be re-nominated (as he was in January 2010 after the first time the Senate failed to confirm him) if he is to be considered again for a full term.  Should that not happen, Mr. Becker’s current recess appointment will expire at the end of 2011.
