Arkansan's nomination to Federal Energy Commission reaches Senate floor

Things move slowly in the Senate, particularly with all the partisan complications. But a Senate committee mustered a voice vote yesterday to move confirmation of Honorable's appointment by President Obama to the Senate floor. There's no opposition to her confirmation. If she isn't approved this year before Congress adjourns, the process would have to start anew next year.
