Recommended actions: Call our MoCs and continue to urge blocking DeVos from confirmation.  It is not clear when her full senate hearing will be held and there will be some rules jousting.  I just talked to the DC office what happened yesterday was that the HELP committee sent her forward with a, 11 nay to 12 yea vote.  Her confirmation will proceed to the Senate floor for consideration of confirmation.  The timing of that confirmation vote is not yet known.  Her DC staff today recommended checking her Facebook feed, her Twitter and her Web site (all of which are linked here) to get the most up to the minute information. Her DC office is getting a high volume of calls with misinformation.

Listen and read the information on Supreme Nominee Gorsuch.  I’m liking Countable.
