President Trump Re-Nominates Buerkle for CPSC Chairman and Baiocco for Commissioner

President Trump wasted no time in re-nominating CPSC Acting Chairman Ann Marie Buerkle for permanent Chairman and for a second term as Commissioner of the agency. Dana Baiocco was also re-nominated for Commissioner. As we recently reported, the Senate returned these nominations to the White House on January 3, 2018, along with those of almost 100 others who had been nominated for various agencies, departments and judgeships. A mere five days later, the White House announced the re-nomination of most of these candidates.

Although Buerkle and Baiocco were approved last fall by the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, they now must be approved again by the committee before they can be approved by the full Senate.
