Senate Confirmation Hearings: Trump's Cabinet Picks For Commerce, Transportation To Face Committee Vote Tuesday

International Business Times

Days after President Donald Trump's inauguration, the Senate is getting ready to vote on his cabinet picks for the secretary of commerce -- Wilbur Ross -- and the head of the transportation department -- Elaine Chao. The Senate Commerce Committee said Sunday it will vote on the nominations of billionaire investor Ross and former Labor Secretary Chao on Tuesday. Once the picks have been approved by the committee, the Senate will take up their nominations. Republicans have been critical of the speed at which Senate Democrats are approving Trump's cabinet picks -- only two of his nominations have been approved yet -- but Democrats maintain it is necessary for those taking office to face proper questioning. "These people are going to have enormous power over Americans for years," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told NBC on Sunday.
