[tweetmeme]Just recveived an email from Aaron Trippler, the Government Affairs Director at AIHA. Indicating that David Michaels’ nomimation to head OSHA has been apporoved by the Senate HELP committee.

text of the email is below: (enjoy)

An update – The Senate HELP Committee 30 minutes ago voted to approve the nomination of David Michaels to be Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA. There was no testimony presented, a simple vote was taken to approve the nomination. Two Republican Senators voted no.

The Senate must now vote to approve the nomination. No idea when this might occur, but probably within a day or two. It is a near certainty he will be confirmed.
