Senate Committee to Vote on Secretary of Labor Nominee Thomas Perez May 16th, 2013 (UPDATED)

For a second time, the US Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) has postponed a vote on Secretary of Labor Nominee, Thomas Perez. The vote will be held on Thursday, May 16, 2013 at 9:15 AM. The vote had been scheduled for Wednesday, May 8, 2013, following an April 22, 2013 Committee Republican Letter to HELP Committee Chairman Tom Harkin (D-IA) requesting that the mark-up of Mr. Perez, first scheduled for April 24, be postponed due to “the number of requests for information that remain outstanding….”

Since it was first announced on March 18, 2013, Mr. Perez’s nomination has been subject to significant criticism.

We will continue to update you throughout Mr. Perez’s confirmation process.
