Update: Senate Fails to Confirm Becker as NLRB Member, Could a Recess Appointment Be Lurking?


On February 9, 2010 the Senate failed to invoke cloture on Craig Becker's nomination to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) by a vote of 52-33. There is a possibility that President Obama could make a recess appointment for Becker when the Senate goes into recess on President's Day. If that were to happen, Becker's appointment to the Board would last until the end of 2011.
