Well, we tried and missed again on projecting a formal vote on the nomination of attorney John Ring to the final vacancy on the National Labor Relations Board. As we told you last week, the Senate Health Education Labor & Pensions Committee (HELP) held its confirmation hearing on the nomination last week and scheduled its formal confirmation vote for yesterday. But alas, the wheels of government do turn slowly and the committee put off its vote again until next week. At this point, it is expected that the HELP Committee will act on the nomination next Monday, March 12 – but we shall see . . .
