Presidential Appointments, the Senateńˇ╗s Confirmation Process, and Changes Made in the 112th Congress
Maeve P. Carey (au)
The responsibility for populating top positions in the executive and judicial branches of government is shared by the Senate and the President. The President nominates an individual, the Senate may confirm him, and the President would then present him with a signed commission. The Constitution divided the responsibility for choosing those who would run the federal government by granting the President the power of appointment and the Senate the power of advice and consent. Several hundred people go through the appointments process each year. During the 112th Congress, a bipartisan group of Senators crafted two measures they contend will make the appointment process easier and quicker. Both measures were adopted. Contents of this report: Background: Advice and Consent; The Executive Branch Process: Selection, Clearance, and Nomination; The Legislative Branch Process: Confirmation; Recent Concerns over the Appointment and Confirmation Process; Changes to the Appointments Process Adopted by the 112th Congress. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
