Senate Finance Committee Advances Trade Nominees

WASHINGTON – The Senate Finance Committee today advanced the nominations of Jeffrey Gerrish to be a Deputy United States Trade Representative, Gregory Doud to be Chief Agricultural Negotiator at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, and Jason Kearns to serve as a member of the International Trade Commission.   

“These three nominees have demonstrated they are well-qualified and ready to serve in each of these important roles,” Hatch said. “As President Trump continues to advance his trade agenda, it is essential that his administration is well-staffed and ready to get to work. I am pleased that the Senate Finance Committee did its part today, and I hope the Senate will act quickly to get these nominees across the finish line.” 

An executive summary, including a breakdown of the vote, will be posted here.
