President Appoints Two New Members to NLRB

Yesterday, President Obama announced that he was bypassing the Senate and installing 15 appointees, including Craig Becker and Mark Pearce to the National Labor Relations Board. As the NLRB has been working with only two of its five members, the installation of Becker and Pearce is certainly welcome news. President Obama had nominated these highly qualified and well-respected lawyers last July, but Senate Republicans blocked their appointment process until now.
