Rep. Ellen Tauscher, D-Alamo, was confirmed just minutes ago on the floor of the U.S. Senate as Undersecretary for Arms Control and International Security in the State Department.
Her official resignation will come in the next day or so and she is scheduled to speak on Friday morning from the floor of the House of Representatives.
After she resigns, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will name a date for a special election to select her replacement.
