The state Senate has started scheduling confirmation hearings for four of the nomination made by Governor Gina Raimondo for her administration. The first four hearings center on holdovers from Lincoln Chafee’s time in office.
The confirmation process for Governor Raimondo’s nominees is slated to start next Tuesday. That’s when separate Senate committees will take up the nominations of Charles Fogarty as head of the Division of Elderly Affairs, and of State Police Colonel Steven O’Donnell to remain director of the Department of Public Safety.
On Wednesday, the Senate Committee on Environment and Agriculture will consider Janet Coit’s nomination to continue as head of the state Department of Environmental Management. Then on Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee will vet A.T. Wall’s nomination to remain director of the state Corrections Department.
Beyond these holdovers, Raimondo has also nominated a series of newcomers for her administration.
