On Wednesday, March 5, 2014, the Senate Committee on Finance, under the leadership of new Chairman Ron Wyden (D-OR), heard testimony from U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew regarding the President’s fiscal year 2015 budget, released this week.

The House Ways and Means Committee will hear from U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Wednesday, March 12, 2014, regarding the details of the President’s HHS budget.
