Energy Secretary Rick Perry Named Designated Survivor

  • US Energy Secretary Rick Perry speaks in Budapest

By tradition, one Cabinet secretary is closeted away at a secure, undisclosed location to ensure continuity of government in case disaster strikes while government leaders attend the speech.

The practice of designating a survivor isn't laid out in the Constitution, but the presidential line of succession is covered in Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution and the Presidential Succession Act.

Perry, Texas' second-longest-serving governor, was a onetime political rival to Trump.

The unusually high number of acting Cabinet officials have prompted concern from Senate Republicans, who have urged the president to nominate permanent people to those positions and other lower-level vacancies throughout the administration. Out of the 15 Cabinet positions eligible for the position under federal law, three Cabinet members were ineligible because they are acting secretaries.

The procedure originated during the Cold War, but there was no publicly-acknowledged designated survivor until 1981. According to IMDb, actor Kiefer Sutherland plays a low-level cabinet official that takes over the presidency after a devastating attack kills everyone above him in the line of succession, in the television series Designated Survivor.

"It's crystal clear that to be in that line of succession, the Cabinet officer must be Senate-confirmed", said Nina Mendelson, a professor of law at the University of MI.

Patrick Shanahan now serves in the role of acting Defense Secretary. That means that Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao can't be the designated survivor, because as a naturalized citizen, she is ineligible for the presidency.
