Senate Banking Committee Considers Nomination of Next Undersecretary of Commerce for Export Administration

The Senate Banking Committee held a hearing yesterday on the nomination of Mario Mancuso to serve as Undersecretary of Commerce for Export Administration. Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) chaired the hearing since Senator Christopher Dodd (D-CT), the Committee's Chairman, was unable to attend.

In addition to reading a prepared statement, Mr. Mancuso answered a brief question on the reauthorization of the Export Administration Act. The Committee did not vote on the nomination and did not provide any date on when the Committee would vote on his nomination.

Mr. Mancuso was nominated by President Bush in January, but his confirmation has been delayed. Prior to his nomination, Mr. Mancuso served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations and Combating Terrorism at the Department of Defense. He previously served as Special Counsel to the General Counsel at the Department of Defense.

BIS has been without an Under Secretary since David McCormick was nominated in August 2006 to serve as Deputy National Security Advisor for International Economic Affairs.
