Lisa Gomez’s bid to lead the Employee Benefits Security Administration has moved past a Senate Committee and waiting for full Senate approval.
Lisa Gomez was approved Dec. 2 by the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee on a near party-line vote of 12-10. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) was the lone Republican to vote in favor of her nomination.
I worked with Lisa at Cohen, Weiss, and Simon LLP, for a short time (on my end). She joined the firm in 1994, became a partner in 2002, and currently serves as Chairperson of the firm’s Management Committee.
