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.

Last week, the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee approved the nomination, moving it out of committee an allowing it to be scheduled for a Senate floor vote. Without a Republican filibuster, Democrats have more than enough votes to give final approval to Solis for the Cabinet position.
