WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Monday will nominate Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez as his next labor secretary, a White House official said.
Before joining the Justice Department in 2009, Perez was Maryland's labor secretary. If confirmed by the Senate, he will replace Hilda Solis, who resigned in January.
