Test vote set for Solis on Feb. 24

February 14, 2009|Times Wire Reports

The Senate set a test vote for Feb. 24 on the nomination of Rep. Hilda L. Solis (D-El Monte) as Labor secretary.

She won committee approval this week after more than a month of delays over questions about tax liens that her husband recently paid and her role as a board member and treasurer of American Rights at Work, a nonprofit working to pass a bill to make it easier for workers to form unions.

A 60-vote majority will be required to advance Solis' nomination to a final vote.
