The Labor Department continues to round out its political team, appointing Dan Greenberg, a former GOP state legislator, as a senior adviser in the agency’s policy office, a DOL spokesman told Bloomberg Law.
Greenberg, an Arkansas state representative from 2007 to 2011, has advanced free market, conservative principles at career stops such as the Heritage Foundation and Cato Institute. He’s also served as senior counsel to the Center for Class Action Fairness, which sues plaintiff’s attorneys on behalf of class members who believe they’ve been subjected to unfair settlements.
He becomes the second announced political hire at the office of the assistant secretary for policy, which advises the Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta on a broad range of issues, from program evaluation to regulations and the budget. The office is now run on an acting basis by Nathan Mehrens and awaits a Senate-confirmed nominee.
The DOL spokesman, in an email, said Greenberg is an expert on occupational licensing, which has been one of Acosta’s focal points during speaking engagements this year. It’s not clear whether Greenberg’s portfolio will be focused on fleshing out the secretary’s bully pulpit push to remove state licensing barriers that inhibit employment.
