The Senate July 29 released a hold on the
nomination of Annette Sandberg to be administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier
Safety Administration, Capitol Hill sources told Land Line.
A hold occurs
when a senator notifies the floor leader that he or she does not want a piece
of legislation or nomination to reach the floor for consideration.
Sen. Craig Thomas, R-WY, had requested
the Senate delay a vote on Sandberg. News reports attributed the delay to a
proposed FMCSA rule that would grant an exemption to people with diabetes to
drive trucks in interstate commerce.
confirmation will likely take place in September.
