Senate confirms David Michaels to head OSHA on a voice vote

The Senate last evening confirmed David Michaels to become Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, that is, OSHA administrator.

His approval came on a voice vote as part of a package of nominees. Thus, this controversial nominee (see Point of Law posts) won confirmation without a public Senate committee hearing or a Senate floor debate to examine his views or record.

The lack of accountability is dismaying.
