Senate Confirms DOE General Counsel

The Detroit News reports that “a University of Michigan law professor will become the top attorney at the U.S. Department of Energy after the U.S. Senate voted Monday to confirm his appointment.”  

“Steven Croley, on leave from the university, earned the new post following a voice vote Monday evening with no debate. President Barack Obama nominated Croley in August 2013 to become general counsel for the Energy Department, where he’ll oversee the legal team and advise Secretary Ernest Moniz on policy matters.”
