Posted on October 18, 2017

WASHINGTON, October 18 — Senate labor committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today made the following statement after the committee confirmed Kyle Fortson to serve as a member of the National Mediation Board:

“While the Board is very fortunate to have Kyle as a member, it will be a loss to the committee, where she has served for so many years. Her experience, knowledge and diligence will make Kyle an ideal member of the board, and I hope the Senate will quickly confirm her.”
