WASHINGTON – The Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, today approved two nominees to serve as Iowa’s U.S. attorneys. Both Peter Deegan, Jr. and Marc Krickbaum, nominees to be U.S. Attorneys for the Northern and Southern Districts of Iowa respectively, were reported to the full Senate by a unanimous, bipartisan voice vote of committee members.
 
“Both Pete Deegan and Marc Krickbaum are highly qualified and ready to lead the offices of U.S. attorneys in Iowa. Mr. Deegan’s nearly 20 years of experience in the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Northern District of Iowa, most recently as Criminal Chief, will serve the people of Iowa well. The Southern District of Iowa will benefit from Mr. Krickbaum’s experience in the Department of Justice, first as counsel to the Deputy Attorney General, then as an Assistant United States Attorney in Chicago and Des Moines.,” Grassley said. “After today’s committee action, their nominations await final consideration by the full United States Senate.”
