The Senate finally confirmed Michael Huerta as Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) yesterday.   He was the deputy FAA administrator and moved up to acting administrator in December 2011 after then-administrator Randy Babbitt resigned after being arrested for driving under the influence.

The Senate confirmed Huerta and a very long list of other executive branch, judicial, military and other officials yesterday.  Huerta's term is for five years. 

Mignon Clyburn was also confirmed as a member of the Federal Communications Commission for five years.
