According to various news and blog reports, President Obama has officially withdrawn his nomination of Craig Becker to be a Member of the National Labor Relations Board.  Becker has been serving a recess appointment which will expire at the end of the year.  Republicans in the Senate last year defeated an effort to confirm Becker to a full term on the Board. 

U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch inn a press release dated December 15, 2011, praised the President’s action and urged him not to make recess appointments of the two persons just nominated this week to the Board.
