BIS Nominees Confirmed

On February 11th two BIS (Bureau of Industry and Security) nominees were confirmed by the Senate to fill the positions of Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Export Administration (Mr. Kevin Wolf) and Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Export Enforcement (Mr. David Mills). However, the position of Under Secretary of Commerce for Export Administration has yet to be filled. Currently the front runner for the most senior position is Mr. Eric Hirschhorn.

In a statement issued by President Obama after the February 11th confirmations, he said that the Senate's action "is a good first step, there are still dozens of nominees on hold who deserve a similar vote, and I will be looking for action from the Senate when it returns from recess. If they do not act, I reserve the right to use my recess appointment authority in the future."
