President Bush sends Bruce James nomination as Public Printer to the Senate for confirmation.

The White House announced today that the President sent a number of nominations to the Senate for confirmation.  Among the nominations was that of Bruce James as Public Printer of the United States.

Although the Senate is hoping to move "quickly" on the James nomination, there is no timeline for the necessary hearing and approval.

President George W. Bush announced he intends to nominate Bruce R. James to be the Public Printer.   

James was CEO of Barclays Law Publishers until retiring in 1993.  He has since become vice chairman of the Board of Trustees of Rochester (NY) Institute of Technology and founded Nevada New-Tech, Inc., a company that invests in technology-based enterprises. 

James is a long-time Printing Industries of America (PIA) member, and has been very active in industry issues and as a member of the PIA Government Affairs Committee. 

James is a graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology.

The "intention to nominate" is one of the steps in the process which can be lengthy.  As with any Presidential appointment, background checks are required.  Once these steps have been satisfactorily completed, the President will formally nominate Bruce to the Senate where a confirmation process will begin.  The Senate confirmation process can run from weeks to months, but James confirmation is expected to move quickly.

On April 16, 2002 the PIA/GATF Board of Directors passed a Resolution supporting the nomination.
