Just In: Obama Taps Three for NLRB Vacancies

The Chicago Tribune reports that President Obama made three recess-appointments to the NLRB: Sharon Block, Terence Flynn, and Richard Griffin. Obama is quoted as saying:
We can't wait to act to strengthen the economy and restore security for our middle class and those trying to get in it, and that's why I am proud to appoint these fine individuals to get to work for the American people.
Frankly, this NLRB issue played out faster than I expected. 2012 is off to a fast start!
