In an unexpected move, President Obama announced this afternoon his intent to renominate current CPSC Acting Chairman, Robert Adler, to a second term at the agency. Acting Chairman Adler’s current term expires in October of this year, and it was unclear whether he would be renominated prior to the confirmation of Elliot Kaye and Joe Mohorovic. Kaye and Mohorovic had a joint confirmation hearing just last month.
The Consumer Product Matters team sends its congratulations to Commissioner Adler on his re-appointment. We look forward to continuing our work with him. We also look forward to the confirmation of three new Commissioners and a fully restored Commission.
