Bush Nominates Acton for PRC Post

Share this article:
President Bush announced his intention last week to nominate Mark Acton of Kentucky to be a commissioner of the Postal Rate Commission for the rest of a six-year term expiring Oct. 14, 2010.


The PRC is an independent regulatory agency composed of five commissioners each appointed to a six-year term by the president and confirmed by the Senate. The president designates one commissioner as chairman.


The current commissioners are chairman George A. Omas; vice chairman Dawn Tisdale, Tony Hammond and Ruth Goldway. Acton would fill a spot vacated by Dana B. Covington, whose term expired Oct. 14, 2005.


Acton currently serves as special assistant to the chairman for the PRC. Prior to this, he served as staff director for the Counsel's Office of the Republican National Committee. Acton received his bachelor's degree from the University of Louisville.
