President Obama's nominee for Department of Health and Human Services secretary, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, receives the Senate Finance Committee's approval April 21. Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., expects confirmation by the full chamber soon, but said "there may be a few [senators] speaking against her." The committee voted 15-8 for Sebelius' clearance, with Republicans Olympia Snowe, Maine, and Pat Roberts, Kan., siding with Democrats. Baucus noted the committee will conduct a "walkthrough" on legislative proposals on health care reform April 29. The committee expects to have a health care reform bill ready for mark-up by mid-June
