Senate To Hold Confirmation Hearings for DHS Assistant Secretary Myers

The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs will hold a hearing to examine the nomination of Julie L. Myers to be Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security on Wednesday, September 12 at 10:00 AM, in room 342 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building.

The hearing will be webcast live on the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee website.

Ms. Myers last testified before the committee on September 15, 2005, when her nomination to be Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security was approved. Though the full Senate never voted on her nomination, Ms. Myers assumed the position in January 2006 following a recess appointment by President Bush. If the past is any indication, this nomination hearing may prove to be controversial due to concerns expressed by senators from both parties over Ms. Myers' lack of qualification for the position.
