Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (“PBGC”) Nominee

On November 29, the Senate HELP Committee advanced the nomination of Gordon Hartogensis to lead the PBGC. With this final approval, Mr. Hartogensis’ confirmation to the post is nearly assured. However, his confirmation could slip into the next Congress because of disagreements over other labor-related nominations (e.g., National Labor Relations Board and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission nominations). The Committee approved Mr. Hartogensis by voice vote, even though Ranking Member Patty Murray (D-WA) said, “The Senate Finance Committee's brief hearing was simply not enough to give this position the attention it deserves.” The Senate Finance Committee held a hearing for Mr. Hartogensis in September and advanced Mr. Hartogensis’ nomination earlier in November with two votes in opposition.
