On the Hill…

April 11, 2014—Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Kathleen Sebelius April 11 announced her resignation. During her tenure at HHS, Sec. Sebelius oversaw implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA, P.L. 111-48, P.L. 111-52) and the roll out of healthcare.gov. Under her stewardship, ACA enrollment topped 7.5 million, as she announced at an April 10 Senate Finance Committee hearing (see related story).

In a Rose Garden ceremony, President Obama announced his nomination of Sylvia Mathews Burwell, current director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace Sec. Sebelius.
