Senate Committee approves Michaels' nomination to head OSHA

David Michaels, President Obama's nominee to be Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, just had his nomination voted out of the Senate HELP Committee. Despite serious concerns about Michaels' views on science, law and business -- see Point of Law posts -- the committee never held a confirmation hearing to question him and today's vote occurred with no discussion.

Sens. Tom Coburn (R-OK) and Richard Burr (R-NC) voted no.
