Solis finally sees some Senate action


Judging from the number of e-mails and calls I get about the nomination of Rep. Hilda Solis as labor secretary, I know that many of you are closely following the issue.

And it seems that Solis may finally be getting a little bit closer to filling the seat.

Her nomination was cleared Wednesday by a vote of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. Now, her bid will go before the full Senate for a final vote. Reports confirm it will likely happen this week.
