Senate Holds Roll Call Vote On Confirmation Of Hart As Chairman Of The NTSB

March 12, 2015 - At 2:11 PM the Senate began a 15 minute roll call vote on confirmation of Executive Calendar #20, Christopher A. Hart, of Colorado, to be Chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board. Hart was confirmed 97-0.

Member Christopher A. Hart was sworn in as a Member of the National Transportation Safety Board on August 12, 2009, and designated by the President for a 2-year term as Vice Chairman of the Board on August 18, 2009.

In August 2013, President Obama nominated him for a second term as Board Member and after Senate confirmation of his nomination, the President, in October 2013, designated him for a third term as Vice Chairman. He has served as Acting NTSB Chairman since April 26, 2014 and in July 2014 was nominated by the President to serve as Chairman of the NTSB. Hart is the 13th chairman of the NTSB.


In response to the Senate Capt. Tim Canoll, president of the Air Line Pilots Association, Int'l (ALPA) said "Mr. Hart's long history of championing proactive aviation safety programs and preventing accidents through improved data sharing reflects a deep commitment to using safety information voluntarily shared every day by thousands of ALPA pilots. 

"Beginning decades ago with collaboration on the Global Aviation Information Network and continuing through work in the Commercial Aviation Safety Team and beyond, ALPA pilots have witnessed first-hand Mr. Hart's commitment to data-driven decisions based on information beyond what is found through accident or incident investigations."
