President Biden’s final two nominees to serve on the U.S. Postal Service’s board of governors promised to take a close look at key decisions made by Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, telling a Senate committee on Thursday they plan to be actively involved in overseeing the mailing agency.

Dan Tangherlini and Derek Kan’s confirmation would ensure Biden’s nominees constitute a majority of the Senate-approved seats on the board, perhaps shaking up the power dynamics that have allowed DeJoy to institute reforms without much resistance. Both nominees appear headed for swift confirmation after receiving bipartisan praise from members of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on Thursday.
