Senate committee hears from two more Labor nominees

Two more high-level jobs at the Labor Department have nominees.

The President has selected Seth Harris for Deputy Secretary of Labor and M. Patricia Smith for Solicitor of the Department of Labor.

The two nominees went before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee last week for a confirmation hearing.

Online Chat: Beth Killoran, deputy assistant secretary for Information Technology and chief information officer at HHS, on March 28.

Chairman Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts was ill and unable to preside over the hearing; Washington Senator Patty Murray ran the hearing for both nominees.
