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. Lawmakers want Sebelius in place quickly as they get to work on legislation overhauling the nation's costly healthcare system.
