Biden expresses hope that inflation will normalize by late next year

Environmentalists are especially frustrated at Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), who has instead prioritized the confirmation of Biden’s judicial nominees before the end of the year, when all nominations are set to expire.

The details: Biden first nominated Daniel-Davis in June 2021. The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee has held two confirmation hearings for her and has twice deadlocked on her nomination, with all 10 Democrats on the panel supporting her and all 10 Republicans opposing.

In March, Energy and Natural Resources Chairman Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.) temporarily delayed his panel’s advancement of Daniel-Davis’s nomination while he assessed Interior’s commitment to pursuing fossil fuel leasing and production on federal lands “in a robust and responsible way.” But Manchin ultimately supported Daniel-Davis at her second confirmation hearing.
