Solis to get vote Tuesday Posted by on

President Barack Obama's nominee for Secretary of Labor will finally get a vote on Tuesday. Congresswoman Hilda Solis' nomination has been pending while Democrats try to figure out if Republican opposition to the Employee Free Choice Act is strong enough to maintain a filibuster on her vote.
