Washington, D.C. — The US Senate today voted 53-46 to confirm Seema Nanda as the Solicitor for the Department of Labor. Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) Chair Judy Chu (CA-27) issued the following statement:

“I am thrilled to congratulate Seema Nanda on her confirmation to serve as Solicitor for the Department of Labor. Whether it’s risks from coronavirus, rising temperatures from climate change, or unscrupulous employers, workers continue to face difficult challenges every day. This is why it’s so significant that President Biden chose somebody with Seema’s experience as the Solicitor of Labor. Her office will play a central role in fighting legal battles and challenges. With experience as the Deputy Solicitor and Chief of Staff at the Department of Labor under Secretary Tom Perez, I know that Seema will be a champion for workers’ rights and vulnerable communities from the very start.”
