How to Fix the Presidential Appointment Process

In my latest column at the University of Mobile’s twelve23 site, I offer a proposal that some conservatives won’t like, but that is fair to all sides, no matter who is in power, and that would normalize the process of how nominations by the president are (or aren’t) approved. In short, it eliminates the recess-appointment power altogether, but it guarantees a final answer on a nominee within six months. ON a final cloture vote, however, it would take only 55 senators, not 60, to move to a final, majority vote. (In other words, a filibuster to extend debate up until six months could still require 60 votes to overcome, but at the six-month time at the latest, final consideration would then take 55, not 60.)

Again, I explain it all here.
