A U.S. Senate committee has approved President Bush’s nomination of Thomas Anderson as U.S. attorney for Vermont.
Governor Douglas talked with Senator Patrick Leahy before recommending Anderson to the White House.
President Bush nominated him last month, and the nomination now moves to the full Senate for a confirmation vote.
Anderson has worked as a prosecutor on the state and federal levels and in private law practice. Most recently, he’s been leading the U.S. attorney’s office’s efforts in investigating drug crimes and border violations.
