Senate Staffer Nominated as CPSC Commissioner
President Trump has announced his intent to nominate Peter Feldman to be a commissioner of the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Feldman would serve out the remainder of former Commissioner Joe Mohorovic’s term expiring Oct. 16, 2019, but would likely be renominated to serve an additional seven-year term.
Feldman is currently senior counsel to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, advising on consumer protection, product safety, data, and privacy issues. According to a White House statement, Feldman has played a key role in the development and enactment of major consumer protection legislation, committee investigations, and congressional oversight of federal agencies, including the CPSC. He previously served on the legislative staff of Sen. Mike DeWine of Ohio.
