When the U.S. Senate reconvenes on Tuesday, February 24th, I’ve learned that they will move ahead with a vote on the nomination of Hilda Solis to serve as 25th Secretary of Labor.   This confirmation vote will take place 35 days following President Obama’s inauguration.  If Mrs. Solis can secure the confirmation of our Asst. Secretaries for MSHA and OSHA in her first 35 days, I for one will be satisfied.
