Perez as Labor secretary and Gina McCarthy as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency quickly followed a deal to end a showdown over executive branch nominations. The 59-40 vote on McCarthy came 133 days after the Senate received her nomination, the longest delay of any Cabinet-level nomination this year.

A southeasterly wind has briefly halted a giant oil slick from moving toward vital water and industrial plants on the Saudi coast, said David Olsen, consultant to the kingdom's Meteorology and Environmental Protection Administration.
