Business groups push for labor nominee Acosta


A coalition of 70 business groups sent a letter to the Senate on Monday urging that it quickly confirm President Trump's nominee to head the Labor Department, R. Alexander Acosta, whose first nomination hearing is scheduled for Wednesday morning.

"Mr. Acosta is a dedicated public servant who has spent years wrestling with complex legal issues, and he has proven management and federal agency experience. He is well qualified to lead this important agency as it protects American workers, implements the president's executive orders and strives to meet the president's goals of eliminating job-crushing regulations, keeping government agencies accountable, and getting Americans back to work," read the letter to the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.
