President Trump on Friday nominated business lawyer John Ring to serve on the National Labor Relations Board, the nation's top labor law enforcement agency.
If confirmed by the Senate, Ring would serve a five-year term, ensuring that the board had a Republican-appointed majority through at least 2020.
Ring has been widely rumored by Washington business trade associations to be the Trump administration's top pick for several months.
Last year, the Senate confirmed three other Trump picks to the board: former GOP House staffer Marvin Kaplan to an open seat, business lawyer Bill Emanuel to another open seat, and private sector lawyer Peter Robb as the board's general counsel.
Trump named Kaplan the chairman after Miscimarra stepped down.
