Seyfarth SynopsisThe Senate Nominations Committee, during a December 13, 2017 meeting, approved the Trump nomination of Scott A. Mugno, for the Assistant Secretary of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health,.

Mugno will now move on to the next step, for final approval.

The Congressional website indicates that Mugno has been “placed on Senate Executive Calendar…. Subject to nominee’s commitment to respond to requests to appear and testify before any duly constituted committee of the Senate.”

We will continue to monitor the status of this nomination.
