The Senate Finance Committee sent the nominations of John Howard, a longtime aide to Cuomo and former chief of staff for Paul Tonko when he was chair of the Assembly Energy Committee, and Tracey Edwards, a former Verizon executive, to the floor. Howard touched on the importance of combating climate change and addressing challenges in the telecommunications sector. Edwards focused on her experience in public service and at Verizon. Committee members asked few questions before moving the nominations at the tail end of an hours-long hearing on nominations.
