Misc. Mondays: Solis Not a Done Deal Yet

Beginning today, Mondays are dedicated to miscellaneous topics/updates that do not necessarily warrant a full day to themselves, but nonetheless are newsworthy.

Representative Hilda Solis (D-CA) has not yet been approved by the Senate, and the Senate could not identify exactly when they will vote on whether to approve her as the next Secretary of the Department of Labor.  Even if the committee approves Solis, her nomination could be blocked by a Republican filibuster because the Republicans are rightfully angry that she refuses to discuss her position on many of the controversial legislation that will likely be voted on in the near future, including the Employee Free Choice Act.  At her confirmation hearing before the House of Representatives, she said she was not qualified to answer questions about those issues.  According to Sen. Mike Enzi of Wyoming, it’s time she becomes qualified and gives answers to those questions.
