Senate Committee to Hold Executive Session on Thomas Perez’ Nomination to Labor Secretary
The Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions has announced it is going to conduct an executive session on May 8, 2013, starting at 10 a.m. on the nomination of Thomas Perez to be U.S. Secretary of Labor. A number of Republican Senators have voiced possible opposition to Perez’ nomination. Since the Democrats constitute the majority on the HELP committee, it is assumed that Perez’ nomination will ultimately be voted favorably out of committee.
