IMA-NA Urges Confirmation of Rajkovich to Review Commission

Posted By Mark Ellis, Wednesday, August 29, 2018

IMA-NA sent letters to President Trump and to Senate Majority Leader McConnell and Minority Leader Schumer urging the Senate to confirm the nomination of Marco Rajkovich to the Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission.  Mr. Rajkovich was nominated by the President on January 8, 2018.  His nomination was favorably reported by the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions on March 14, 2018, and was placed on the Senate’s Executive Calendar that same day.  As of August 30, the terms of Commissioners William Althen and Robert Cohen, Jr. expire.  As a result, the Commission will lack a quorum of members (it will have only two of its five members) and therefore will be without authority to take substantive actions in any of the cases pending before it until at least one additional Commissioner is both nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate.  IMA-NA also urged the President to identify and nominate qualified individuals to bring the Commission to its full five-member complement.

The letters to President Trump and to Senate Majority Leader McConnell and Minority Leader Schumer are attached.
