OSHRC Chair Named Administrative Conference Vice-Chair

Thomasina Rogers will assume Chairman Paul Verkuil's responsibility during his absence.

President Obama has chosen Thomasina Rogers, who chairs the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission, as vice-chair of the Administrative Conference of the United States. ACUS is an independent federal agency with the mission of improving federal agency procedures and administrative processes through consensus-driven applied research.

Rogers fills the post previously held by Preeta Bensal, the former general counsel and senior policy advisor for the Office of Management and Budget. As vice-chair of ACUS' 11-member governing council, Rogers will assume the responsibilities of ACUS Chairman Paul R. Verkuil when he is absent, incapacitated, or the office is vacant.

Verkuil, president emeritus of the College of William & Mary, is the tenth chairman in the history of ACUS, which was created by executive orders from Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy. It was unfunded and inactive for 15 years until Congress revived it in 2009 and Obama selected the current members the following year. They include Julius Genachowski, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, and Michael Fitzpatrick, associated administrator of OMB's Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.
