Senators will vote again this week on President Joe Biden’s stalled nominee for a little-known mine safety agency that’s seen internal conflict in recent years.

The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee on Tuesday will vote on Moshe Marvit to serve on the Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission.

The committee is also scheduled to vote on other stalled Biden picks, including Julie Sue to serve as Labor secretary and Stephen Ravas to serve as inspector general for the Corporation for National and Community Service.


Marvit’s nomination cleared the same committee last year on an 11-10 party-line vote, but the full chamber failed to act. In January, the White House renominated Marvit.
