No confirmation timetable, Sebelius says

TOPEKA – Gov. Kathleen Sebelius said Wednesday she did not know what the time table was for her confirmation hearings as Health and Human Services Secretary.

“I am not presuming anything, I’m back here to do my job as governor and prepare for hearings,” Sebelius said after an appearance at a Kansas Citizens for the Arts meeting in Topeka. “The timetable is really in the control of the United States Senate.”

On Monday, President Barack Obama introduced Sebelius as his pick for the country’s top health spot.

In the mean time, the governor said she was “fully engaged,” in the 2010 budget process.
