UPDATE 11:08 a.m.: Wilbur Ross and Elaine Chao have also been approved by Senate committees. They, along with Carson, will then be voted on by the full Senate. 

There were no objections on the panel to either Ross or Chao, Reuters reports.

UPDATE 10:27 a.m.: Carson has been approved by the Senate committee. 

As President Trump seeks to fill his Cabinet, hearings and votes continue today.

Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions will face a Senate vote today, as will Housing and Urban Development secretary nominee Ben Carson.

Meanwhile, Tom Price, Trump's nominee for health and human services secretary, will face another hearing as he is dogged by allegations he passed laws to benefit his stock portfolio and over Trump's executive order on "easing the burden" of the Affordable Care Act.
