WASHINGTON – The nomination of Chuck Hagel as the next US secretary of defense is slated to be put up for a vote on Tuesday.

The Senate Armed Services Committee announced Monday that the vote would take place in the afternoon on the following day, and committee chairman Sen. Carl Levin said that members would have the opportunity to make comments before casting their votes.

Should he be approved by the committee, Hagel would then have to face the full Senate.
