U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Monday voiced her approval of President Barack Obama's nomination of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to be Health and Human Services Secretary.

“Governor Sebelius is a proven, bipartisan leader who has worked to expand health care access for children and to provide Kansans with affordable prescription drugs," Pelosi said in a statement. “Governor Sebelius’ deep understanding of health care issues and their impact on our workers and our economy will greatly benefit the American people and help President Obama achieve his goal of passing health care reform legislation this year, which is critical to our nation’s fiscal future."

Pelosi said she looks forward to a quick confirmation by the Senate.
