Democrat McFerran Approved by Senate HELP Committee to be NLRB Member

By Edwin S. Hopson

On December 2, 2014, the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee approved the nomination of Democrat Lauren McFerran to serve as a Member of the NLRB. Her nomination now goes to the Senate floor for consideration. It would appear she will be confirmed during the lame duck session, barring something unforeseen, meaning that the NLRB will continue to have three Democrat and two Republican Members.
