Senate committee approves Trump nominee John Ring for NLRB

Republicans on a U.S. Senate committee on Wednesday voted along party lines to approve President Donald Trump’s nomination of John Ring, a partner at Morgan Lewis & Bockius, to a vacancy on the National Labor Relations Board.

The 12-11 vote by the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee sends Ring’s nomination to the full Senate for a confirmation vote, which has not yet been scheduled. If confirmed, Ring would give Republicans a 3-2 edge on the board. They lost their majority when former Chair Philip Miscimarra’s term expired in December.
