Sebelius confirmation hearing date still uncertain

No word yet on a hearing date for Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius’ nomination to become secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.

Spokesmen for the White House and Senate Finance Committee, which will hold her confirmation hearing, said nothing has been settled. Speculation on Capitol Hill leans to holding it after Congress’ two-week Easter recess.

That would put the hearing off until at least late April. Sebelius has been making the rounds on Capitol Hill to chat up lawmakers.

She would be the last of President Obama’s cabinet picks to be confirmed.
