Robin Carnahan nominated to Biden Administration

A U-S Senate committee votes this week on whether to advance to the floor the nomination of former Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan. 

President Joe Biden has chosen Carnahan to head up the General Services Administration – a 12-thousand employee independent agency that oversees many federal government operations and property. 

During a committee hearing, Carnahan told senators she was horrified by the slow pace of federal pandemic relief due to outdated technology systems. 

As the agency’s leader, she says one of her priorities would be working to shore up the “fragility” of the government’s digital infrastructure.  

Carnahan also says the government could benefit from realizing the attractiveness of positions that allow remote work.
