“Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) lifted his blockade on 425 military nominations Tuesday, keeping holds in place just on a handful of four-star officers in some of the Pentagon’s most senior positions.

By Tuesday evening, the Senate had voted to confirm the nominations of all 425 officers released by Tuberville, putting them immediately into the jobs they have been waiting to assume — with the commensurate paychecks — for as long as 10 months.”
