Mar 11, 2019

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's Cabinet is now officially in place after Michigan lawmakers let her appointees stand confirmed.

The Senate had a 60-day window in which to reject the Democrat's choices to lead various state departments and offices.

The deadline passed Sunday for 11 appointees.

The window for another appointee expires Monday.

A Republican-led Senate committee held advice-and-consent hearings on Whitmer's picks.
