Washington, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) today spoke on the Senate floor regarding today’s votes to confirm more of President Biden’s well-qualified judicial and executive nominees. Below are Senator Schumer’s remarks, which can also be viewed here:
We are moving ahead with confirming President Biden’s critical and well-qualified nominees.
Later today we will vote on confirmation of Alan Leventhal to serve as U.S. Ambassador to Denmark.
Later this week—once we conclude the PACT Act—we will also move forward on the nomination of Mary Boyle, Consumer Product Safety Commission, whose confirmation would give that agency a Democratic Majority.
We will also soon vote to confirm another historic judicial nominee, Ana Isabel de Alba, to serve as the District Judge for the Eastern District of California. Judge De Alba would be the first-ever Latina to serve as a federal judge on California’s Eastern District, joining the more-than-65 qualified judicial nominees that this Majority has confirmed under President Biden.
I am proud of the historic progress this Senate Democratic majority has made in confirming well-qualified and diverse nominees to the executive branch, to independent boards, and to the federal bench. And we are going to keep going.
