Senate to Hold Hearing on Nominations of Senior BIS Officials

The Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs will hold a hearing tomorrow, January 21, 2009, on the confirmation of several persons nominated to serve in the Obama Administation, including two senior officials at the Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS).

The Committee will consider the nominations of Kevin Wolf  to serve as Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Export Administration and David Mills to serve as Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Export Enforcement, both of whom were nominated in December.

On November 5, 2009, the Committee held a hearing today on the nomination of Eric Hirschhorn to serve as Under Secretary of Commerce for Export Administration, the most senior position at BIS. While Mr. Hirschhorn's nomination was reported to the full Senate for inclusion on the Senate calendar on December 17, 2009, the Senate's vote was delayed due to the debate on health care and the Christmas recess.
