The GOP majority is back, baby!

Today the Senate confirmed John Ring's appointment to the National Labor Relations Board, filling the vacancy created when former Chairman Philip Miscimarra stepped down in December.

The confirmation of Mr. Ring, by a 50-48 party-line vote, restores the 3-2 Republican majority on the Board.

Mr. Ring is a management-side labor lawyer in the Washington, D.C., Office of Morgan Lewis.

UPDATE (4/12/18): Bloomberg BNA reports that President Trump intends to appoint Mr. Ring as NLRB Chairman, a position currently held by Marvin Kaplan, another Trump appointee.
