On April 25, President Obama nominated Howard Shelanski to serve as Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) Administrator. OIRA oversees federal regulations. Shelanski, the current Federal Trade Commission Bureau of Economics Director, will be considered by the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee before his nomination is voted upon by the full Senate. On April 26, public interest groups expressed concern about the nomination, saying there needs to be oversight to ensure Shelanski works in the public interest.
