HSGAC advances Robert Taub’s PRC renomination; awaits full Senate consideration

Today, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (HSGAC) voted 12-0 to advance the renomination of Robert Taub to serve on the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC). The unanimous vote came after the committee held a hearing on Taub’s renomination last week.

Taub’s nomination now awaits consideration in the full Senate. NALC urges the Senate to swiftly advance Taub’s nomination. He is currently serving in a holdover year that expires on Oct. 22.

Taub is one of two PRC nominees currently in the confirmation process. Yesterday, President Biden announced his intent to nominate Thomas Day to serve on the PRC, replacing Commissioner Mark Acton. HSGAC has not yet held a hearing on Day’s nomination.

NALC will update letter carriers as Taub’s and Day’s nominations progress.
