Tuesday, the U.S. Senate unanimously confirmed Neronha. U.S. Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse commended the confirmation of Neronha.
“We applaud the Senate’s confirmation of Peter Neronha as Rhode Island’s next U.S. Attorney. Mr. Neronha’s years of exemplary service in the Attorney General’s office and the U.S. Attorney’s office have earned him respect throughout Rhode Island’s law enforcement and legal communities. We are confident he will do an outstanding job of serving and protecting the people of Rhode Island.”
As you might recall, Reed and Whitehouse recommended Neronha for the position in May, and President Obama formally nominated him in July. Best of luck to newly confirmed US Attorney Neronha.
