Good News on Nominations

The Washington Post reports that the Senate is willing to relinquish some of its authority to block minor executive appointments. Yesterday the Senate voted to reduce the number of executive appointments subject to Senate confirmation. The resolution affects approximately 170 of the 1,400 or so positions currently subject to Senate confirmation. The Senate is also expected to create a streamlined confirmation procedure for nearly 300 more executive positions.
