Senate committee hears from two more Labor nominees

Monday - 5/11/2009, 3:08pm EDT

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.

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