Reid Statement On Nomination Deal

Washington, DC—Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the following statement today after striking a deal for the U.S. Senate confirmation of dozens of pending nominations.  The list of nominations follows:

“The Senate today confirmed many important nominations, including posts to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, Department of Justice, Securities and Exchange Commission, FEMA, the State Department, and numerous high-level career and political ambassadorial nominees.  In confirming Elizabeth A. Duke for a term through 2012, we are ensuring the Fed can function during these difficult economic times.  And we are restoring Democratic representation to the SEC, where it had been absent.  I am pleased that we were able to reach an agreement with the President and Senate Republicans so we can name these well-qualified public servants to the distinguished positions for which they have been nominated.”
