Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) is releasing a statement following committee hearings for U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary nominee Xavier Becerra:

“Following hearings in the Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) and the Committee on Finance, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has demonstrated that he is the kind of leader our Nation needs at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) during this challenging time. He has spent his career fighting to expand access to health care, protecting patients and consumers, and working to strengthen Medicare and Medicaid. As a Congressman, he was instrumental in the drafting and passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and as California’s Attorney General he has led the fight to protect it. After reviewing his background and record, meeting with him and listening to his testimony before two committees, I look forward to supporting his nomination on the Senate floor.”
