NRC Nominations on the Calendar

Tracy Marc|

The  Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works hearing on Kristine Svinicki's reappointment is scheduled for June 13 along with the nominations for Annie Caputo and David Wright. 

However, EPW Ranking Member Tom Carper (D-DE) told reporters yesterday that he had asked EPW Chair John Barrasso (R-WY) to move forward with Svinicki and hold Caputo and Wright's confirmation for review, or until they can be paired with a Democratic nominee. 

Commissioner Jeff Baran is up for re-nomination next June, and it's likely his hearing would need to wait until his re-nomination package is finished. 

Note: Pairing Republican and Democratic nominees to independent commissions is not unusual in Washington, but in this case it would make for a more drawn-out process.
