Senate To Vote On HHS Secretary

KSCB News - April 17, 2009 12:00 am

A Senate committee has scheduled a vote for Tuesday on President Barack Obama’s nominee for health and human services secretary, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius.

The Senate Finance Committee will vote on sending Sebelius’

nomination to the full Senate. She’s expected to win confirmation

despite concerns raised by anti-abortion activists in recent days

over campaign money she got from a Kansas abortion doctor.

Lawmakers want Sebelius in place quickly as they get to work on

legislation overhauling the nation’s costly health care system.

Sebelius is Obama’s second choice for health secretary after

former Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle withdrew in a tax

controversy.
