The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee will hold a confirmation hearing on March 15 for President Donald Trump’s nominee, Alexander Acosta, to be the next secretary of Labor.

Following next week’s hearing, an executive session will be scheduled for committee members to vote on Acosta’s nomination.

Acosta’s Office of Government Ethics paperwork was submitted to the committee and will be posted on the OGE website once public. Acosta’s committee paperwork was also received Tuesday.

HELP Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander said after meeting with Acosta last week that Acosta “understands how harmful Obama-era labor regulations have made it harder for Americans to create, find or keep good-paying jobs. I plan to schedule a confirmation hearing promptly after his nomination papers are complete, at which point I look forward to hearing his views on creating an environment for American workers to succeed in a rapidly changing workplace.”
