The U.S. Senate this morning broke deadlocks on more than 60 presidential nominees, including those for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the National Labor Relations Board and the D.C. Superior Court.
Two NLRB nominees were among those confirmed, bringing the board to full strength with five sitting members a week after the Supreme Court addressed questions surrounding prior vacancies. Brian Hayes, a former Republican congressional staff member, was confirmed to a term expiring in 2012. Mark Pearce, a Buffalo, N.Y., labor lawyer who was given a recess appointment to the NLRB three months ago, was confirmed to a term expiring in 2013.
