The Senate HELP Committee met in an Executive Session today and approved several Presidential nominations including Dr. Frances Cordova to be the Director of NSF.
The HELP Committee approved Dr. Cordova’s nomination last year (December 18, 2013). With a new year, the Committee must approve her nomination once again. From here, Dr. Cordova’s nomination will need to be approved by the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee and the whole Senate as well.
