ARGUELLO AND BRIMMER VOTED OUT OF SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE
Allard Pressing Senate to Confirm Both to the Bench
U.S. Sen. Wayne Allard (R-Colo.) announced today that the Senate Judiciary Committee has approved the federal judicial nominations of Philip Brimmer and Christine Arguello. Both nominees will be reported out of Committee with favorable recommendations and now proceed to the floor of the Senate for a final confirmation vote.
"A fair process that gives qualified candidates and up-or-down' vote has always been my desire and I am extremely pleased with the Judiciary Committee's action today," said Allard. "It is critical to the administration of justice that the vacancies on Colorado's federal district court be filled immediately. Although I had hoped that we could be sending three nominees to the Senate for a vote, the rapid consideration these two nominees received from the Judiciary Committee is greatly appreciated."
The full Senate is expected to vote on Brimmer and Arguello's confirmation before Congress adjourns for the year.
