Obama Re-Nominates Attwood for OSHRC Commissioner


Obama Re-Nominates Attwood for OSHRC Commissioner

On March 21, 2013, President Barak Obama re-nominated Cynthia Attwood to the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission (OSHRC) in anticipation of her current term as Commissioner expiring on April 27, 2013. Ms. Attwood will need to be confirmed by the Senate in order to continue her work as an OSHRC Commissioner.

Currently on the Review Commission with Ms. Attwood is the Honorable Thomasina V. Rogers, Chairman of the Commission. Should the Senate fail to confirm Ms. Attwood by the time her term expires on April 27th, the Review Commission would not have a quorum, thereby preventing it from issuing decisions and significantly hampering the review of ALJ decisions.

We will keep you posted throughout Ms. Attwood’s confirmation process.
