The Senate today confirmed California congresswoman Hilda Solis as labor secretary. Solis' confirmation gives the agency a decidedly pro-worker tilt after eight years of business-friendly leadership under the Bush administration. The 80-17 vote comes after more than a month of delays. GOP lawmakers were concerned over her work for a pro-union group that supports legislation easing the process for workers to organize unions. She also had to answer questions about tax liens filed against her husband.
