The franchise issue may have moved as scheduled in Florida, but the wheels of government turn much more slowly in the nation’s capital. Despite having been approved by the HELP Committee in the US Senate over one week ago, there is still no confirmation vote scheduled on the nomination of Alex Acosta as Labor Secretary in the Trump administration. Acosta was approved last week in committee on a party line vote of 12-11 and is expected to win confirmation once his nomination comes to the floor of the full Senate. When exactly that will be, remains to be seen.
