Donovan to Receive Early Confirmation Hearing

Good news is on the way for those who are anxiously awaiting New York City Housing Commissioner Shaun Donovan's confirmation as secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the Obama Administration.

On January 13, the Senate Banking Committee will hold a hearing to consider Donovan's nomination for the position of HUD secretary. The early confirmation hearing could mean a quick Senate approval for Donovan, so that he may assume leadership of HUD shortly after the President-elect is sworn in on January 20.

Donovan was recently honored with the distinguished "Public Service Award" at the NYHC/NHC 35th Anniversary Awards Luncheon in New York, NY on December 11, just days before his nomination was announced.
