Schumer Tees up Employee Benefits Pick Gomez for Senate Votes

May 19, 2022, 4:57 AM

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday filed a motion to limit floor debate on the nomination of Lisa Gomez to lead the US Department of Labor’s employee benefits agency.

Schumer previously filed and then withdrew the same procedural step last month.

The motion would tee up Gomez, most recently a partner at Cohen, Weiss & Simon LLP in New York, up for final votes before the full Senate.

(Editor’s Note: Gomez is co-chair of the Board of Senior Editors for Bloomberg Law’s Employee Benefits Law treatise.)
