Senate Committee to Hold Confirmation Hearing on McFerran NLRB Nomination

By Edwin S. Hopson

The U.S. Senate’s Health, Employment, Labor and Pensions Committee (HELP) has set a full committee hearing for November 20, 2014, on the nomination of Lauren McFerran to be a Member of the National Labor Relations Board. She was just nominated by the President on November 12, 2014.

Assuming the HELP Committee votes out her nomination to the full Senate, since the Democrats still control the Senate, she may well be confirmed prior to the end of the lame-duck session.
