President Bush moved to complete his second-term Cabinet on December 9 with an announcement that the heads of the transportation, labor, interior and housing departments would remain in their jobs.
The White House said Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, Interior Secretary Gale Norton and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Alphonso Jackson will stay.
Nine of 15 Cabinet secretaries have resigned. Bush has still to name nominees to head the Energy Department and the department of Health and Human Services. (Source: Reuters, Dec 9, 2004)
