Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate -

Though Congress is out on Memorial Day recess this week, we anticipate a significant amount of work to be accomplished the weeks to follow. The Senate is expected to easily approve Dr. Allison Macfarlane to be Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman, Penny Pritzker to be Secretary of Commerce, and Anthony Foxx to be Secretary of Transportation. It is less clear when the Senate will vote on the nomination of Gina McCarthy to be Environmental Protection Agency Administrator. The spokesperson for Senate Environment and Public Works Ranking Member David Vitter (R-LA) projected the vote to be held in June, although Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has said he does not have a time frame for the vote.
