President Obama has decided he won’t nominate permanent leaders to head the ATF and U.S. Marshals Service, The Hill reports.

That means that the interim department heads will stay in their positions until the end of Obama’s administration next year, the Justice Department announced Monday.

That decision means that neither U.S. Marshals Service Acting Director David Harlow nor interim ATF head Thomas Brandon will face Senate confirmation hearings.

It was expected that confirmation hearings would be difficult and timely, “especially as scrutiny ramps up in the months ahead of next year’s presidential election,” The Hill wrote.

Together, they “have demonstrated themselves to be outstanding public servants and extraordinary partners in the work of building a stronger, safer nation,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement announcing the decision not to seek Senate-confirmed replacements.
