The Federal Elections Commission (FEC) is about to get some new blood.
"The Senate on Monday confirmed President Barack Obama's two nominees to the Federal Election Commission, giving the panel its first new members since the George W. Bush administration," according to Politico.
Public Campaign Action Fund's David Donnelly released the following statement, praising the news:
"Today's approval of Lee Goodman and Ann Ravel is an important step toward restoring the Federal Election Commission to a functional overseer of elections. Without regard to party affiliation, Americans everywhere are troubled by money flooding our elections.
"We deserve commissioners who can work together, in a bipartisan manner, to uphold the law. We look forward to the tenures of Mr. Goodman and Ms. Ravel, and we praise Senators of both parties who came together to approve these nominations."
We look forward to what will hopefully be a better-functioning commission.
