  • Senate confirms President's Secretary of Energy nominee

    Ernest Moniz

    The U.S. Senate unanimously approved nominee Ernest Moniz as the nation's new Secretary of Energy with a 97-0 vote in favor earlier today.

    Moniz was nominated by President Barack Obama in March after former Secretary Steven Chu announced his plan to leave the Department of Energy in February.

    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor was confirmed by the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee in April, though the Senate vote had been delayed by Sen. Lindseey Graham, R.-S.C., who was reportedly protesting Obama's plan to cut around US$200 million from a South Carolina mixed oxide fuel processing facility.

    Moniz joins the President's cabinet alongside fellow newcomer Sally Jewell, who was confirmed as Secretary of the Interior in April.
