Senate to Vote on Perdue Nomination on April 24
USAgNet - 04/19/2017
The Senate is scheduled to vote at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, April 24, on President Trump's nomination of former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue to be Agriculture Secretary.
The vote comes after the Senate Agriculture Committee held a confirmation hearing on his nomination on March 23, and a vote out of Committee on March 30.
The Department of Agriculture has been without a confirmed Secretary for nearly three months.
Next week will be busy, starting with a confirmation vote on Perdue followed by necessary action to pass a funding bill for the remainder of FY 2017 prior to the expiration of the current Continuing Resolution on April 28.
