Becker Nomination (Roll Call 22)
The Senate voted against halting debate on the
nomination of Craig Becker to be a member of the National Labor Relations Board. ACU
opposed the nomination of Becker to the NLRB because his long record as a union
organizer indicated his lack of objectivity for the position. In this case, on February 9,
2010, although a 52-33 majority of the Senate voted to stop debate and move to
confirmation, under Senate rules 60 votes were required.
