Confirmation Hearing Near End for Sebelius

It looks like Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius will soon be the former Governor of Kansas. That change in status could come as soon as the end of this week.

With the Senate Committee’s vote that is scheduled for tomorrow, the full Senate should get the opportunity to vote on the Governor’s cabinet position nomination either Wednesday or Thursday.

Sebelius’ ties to abortion provider Dr. George Tiller have sparked active protests from Pro-Life groups, but are not expected to derail her nomination as Health and Human Services Secretary.

Kansas Lt. Governor Mark Parkinson would automatically become Governor if and when Governor Sebelius is confirmed.

About Mike Schrant

Mike is one of those guys who has spent nearly a lifetime trying to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up. He has split time as a broadcaster and educator having first worked in radio in the early 1970’s while attending junior college. The two careers are directly connected because many of the 25 years as an educator were spent teaching broadcast journalism at the high school and college levels. Mike is married and has three adult children (no grandchildren yet) and enjoys sports, debating politics, gardening, landscaping-hauling rocks, and swapping stories with the "good old boys".
