HSGAC advances Thomas Day’s PRC nomination; awaits full Senate consideration

Today, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (HSGAC) voted 10-5 to advance the nomination of Thomas Day to serve on the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC). The vote came after the committee held a hearing on Day’s renomination last week.

Day’s nomination now awaits consideration in the full Senate. If confirmed, he would replace Mark Acton, the current vice chairman of the commission.

Day is one of two PRC nominees currently in the confirmation process. Last week, HSGAC unanimously advanced the renomination of Robert Taub, who is currently serving on the PRC in a holdover year that expires on Oct. 22.

NALC urges the Senate to swiftly consider the nominees before both terms expire next month.
