New Nominations to EEOC and NLRB

President Trump is expected to nominate DC lawyer, Andrea Lucas, and re-nominate Labor Department official, Keith Sonderling, for Republican seats on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and civil rights attorney, Jocelyn Samuels, for a Democratic seat.  This will return the Commission to full membership.

The White House will also name former NLRB member Lauren McFerran (D) and current member Marvin Kaplan (R) for new, five-year terms on the NLRB.

These nominations will retain Republican majorities on both independent bodies but do not appear intended to affect the high-level of partisan discord on them.
