Hearings Finally Scheduled for Herman
After delaying Alexis Herman's Secretary of Labor confirmation hearings for weeks, Senator James Jeffords has finally scheduled the hearings. Commenting that he found her responses concerning questions about her private finances and conduct as a White House aide to be "adequate", the Chair of the Senate Labor and Human Resources Comittee scheduled the hearings for March 18th. A spokesperson for the White House commented, "We think when the full committee has a chance to hear from Alexis Herman, they'll agree that she'll be an outstanding secretary of labor."
