Sebelius confirmation hearings start

New York Times, April 1, 2009

The first of two hearings began on the confirmation of Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to become the Obama administration's secretary of health and human services. The Democratic governor of Kansas faced a largely friendly audience from the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. Sebelius appears before the Finance Committee on April 2. A date for full confirmation by the Senate, if her name is moved out of committee, remains uncertain.
