WMBD/WYZZ TV – WASHINGTON -- Ray LaHood's confirmation for
the Transportation Secretary has been postponed. He was supposed to be
confirmed this afternoon, but it was pushed off. LaHood's representative says
the US Senate Commerce Committee needed more paperwork from LaHood before they
could make the appointment. Delays also happen because there are so many
appointments being made at once. LaHood's representative predicts that LaHood's
appointment will go through without any issues.
