The NLRB Is Back

NLRBI honestly didn't think I'd be writing those words this early, but it's true: today, the Senate confirmed five members for the NLRB, which is now full strength.  Kent Hirowaza and Nancy Schiffer were confirmed 54-44; Chairman Pearce was reconfirmed 59-38; and the two Republicans, Harry Johnson and Phillip Miscimarra were confirmed on a voice vote.

I very pleased to see the Board at full strength--and in a manner that should keep it stable for a few years at least.  I'm sure it's a great relief to employees at the Board.

Hat Tip: Patrick Kavanagh
