MEDIA ADVISORY: HELP Committee to Hold Markup, Including on the Renomination of Acting Secretary of Labor Julie Su

WASHINGTON, Feb. 26 – The Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) will tomorrow at approximately 12:30 p.m. ET hold a markup on the renomination of Acting Secretary Julie Su to serve as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor. The committee will also consider the nominations of Moshe Marvit to become a Member of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission, and Stephen Ravas to serve as Inspector General of the Corporation for National and Community Service.

“I strongly support Acting Secretary Julie Su's renomination to serve as Secretary of Labor,” said Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Chairman of the HELP Committee. “She has been an excellent Deputy Secretary of Labor, an excellent Acting Secretary of Labor, and I believe that she will make an excellent Secretary of Labor. Her strong pro-worker track record and tireless dedication to working families across this country shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that she is the right person for the job. I urge my colleagues to support her nomination.”

Su has served as Acting Secretary of Labor since March 2023 and was confirmed by the full Senate to serve as Deputy Secretary in July of 2021. The Senate HELP Committee previously voted to advance Su’s nomination to Labor Secretary in April of 2023.
