Senate Moves Nominations Under Majority Rule

The Senate confirmed Patricia Millett to the D.C. Circuit and Mel Watt to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency under its new, filibuster-free majority rule for confirmations (except Supreme Court confirmations).  WaPo's Post Politics blog reports here.  We posted earlier on Millett's nomination and on the Senate's move to do away with the filibuster for confirmations.
