Last May President Obama nominated our member, Elizabeth Copeland, for a Federal judicial position on the United States Tax Court in Washington, DC. As part of the confirmation process, she will have a hearing before the US Senate Committee on Finance this Thursday beginning at 10:00 am Eastern Time (9:00 am Central). The hearing will be video broadcast live on the Committee's website and can be watched at a later date. Below is the link:
There are 4 nominees scheduled for hearings that day; 2 administration nominees and 2 Tax Court nominees. Elizabeth is third on the list. Sometime after the hearing, the Committee will vote on her, and if that's positive, then her nomination will go to the full Senate for a confirmation vote. The process will take some time, but we are excited for Elizabeth and for our organization during this historic process.
