The US Senate has unanimously approved longtime Republican fundraiser Kelly Knight Craft's nomination to be the next American ambassador to Canada.  Ms. Knight Craft will need to present credentials to Canada's Governor General before her appointment commences.  Other key approvals include the US Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation's confirmation of retired US Navy Rear Adm. Mark H. Buzby as the new administrator of the Maritime Administration (MarAd) and appointment Robert L. Sumwalt III to a two-year term as chair of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). The position of MarAd administrator had been vacant since the mid-January departure of Chip Jaenichen.
