The Senate Commerce Committee will hold a hearing Wednesday on the nomination of former Washington state Governor Gary Locke to be US commerce secretary. Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) supports the nomination and business lobbyists said they believed he would be confirmed. As commerce secretary, the former governor would lead a huge bureaucracy whose functions range from enforcing U.S. trade laws and boosting exports to overseeing the 2010 census and monitoring global climate change.
