Confirmation hearings on Markell’s DNREC nominee–Thursday, April 2, 2:00 pm.

Friends:

The Senate Executive Committee will hold hearings on Governor Markell’s nominee for Secretary of the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) after 2:00 pm on Thursday, April 2, 2009.

The hearing will be in the Senate Chamber of Legislative Hall, Dover.

This nomination by the Governor requires confirmation by the Senate (the House of Representatives has no say).

Unlike most General Assembly committee hearings, the public traditionally has not been allowed to participate at all in confirmation hearings.  Hear that again: no questions directly from the public.  If you don’t agree with that, let the committee members know (below):

The public IS allowed to attend and observe, and this hearing could be interesting.
