The Legal Services Corporation nominees



Immediately below we note the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee is holding an executive session tomorrow to mark up nominees for the National Labor Relations Board and OSHA.

And five nominees to the Legal Services Corporation, who will also escape having to go through public hearings.

Here's a news release from Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY), the ranking Republican on the HELP committee, from September 18, 2007, "Enzi Says Legal Services Corporation Oversight Must be Strengthened, Better Management Needed."

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Mike Enzi (R-WY), Ranking Member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, today said that a new report by the General Accountability Office (GAO) confirmed that the Legal Services Corporation (LSC) needs additional governance and accountability measures to ensure effective board oversight.

With respect, wouldn't a confirmation hearing be one example of oversight and accountablity?

Edited a bit at 4 p.m. for clarity.
