Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis announced Wednesday that she will leave the administration — a surprise resignation that adds to what is turning into a major shake-up among President Obama's team.
Leaders of a House panel want a Tennessee public relations firm to turn over records on roughly $2 million in federal stimulus program contracts it won from the Department of Labor, including details of the work it did on a nearly half-million-dollar ad campaign on MSNBC that reported creating no jobs.
Dear Sgt Shaft: How do I begin to get an exemption/dispute from the 20/20/20 rule? They do happen per individual Dates of Service and Regulation Changes. I was married for 30 years. My husband was on active duty for 22 years. Only 17½ not 20 were overlapping years. I understand that the rules have changed. I was told that if I was married for 20 years with 20 years active duty that I would qualify for former spouse if divorced. How do I start a case requesting Former Spouse Benefits exempting the 20-20-20 requirement?

Former Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis bluntly declared there was "a new sheriff in town" when she took over the department in 2009.
Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner and Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis have also announced they are leaving.
