Lawmakers often pass dozens of bills as the congressional year draws to a close, and on Wednesday the Senate decided to clear several ambassadors nominated by President Obama earlier this year.
The group was cleared to take office by a unanimous consent in the Senate, which means lawmakers did not have to individually vote on any of the nominees.
Here's the list:
- Catherine Ebert-Gray, ambassador to the independent state of Papua New Guinea
- G. Kathleen Hill, ambassador to the Republic of Malta
- John D. Feeley, ambassador to the Republic of Panama
- Eric Seth Rubin, ambassador to the Republic of Bulgaria
- Kyle R. Scott, ambassador to the Republic of Serbia
- Todd Chapman, ambassador to the Republic of Ecuador
- Jean Elizabeth Manes, ambassador to El Salvador
- Linda Swartz Taglialatela, ambassador to Barbados, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, Antigua and Barbuda and the Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines
