Becker's NLRB Nomination Delayed

Workplace Prof Blog reported on Dec. 28, 2009 that Craig Becker's nomination to the NLRB has been referred back to the President. Reportedly, one Senator, in this case Senator McCain, can put a hold on a nomination, but the candidate can be re-nominated.

As I have mentioned before, I have worked with Craig and he is a first rate lawyer and will make an excellent Board member. He worked for the AFL-CIO, the SEIU and is a former FT law professor at UCLA. What I do not understand is why the President just doesn't make a recess appointment.
